Last night we got a glimpse and a reminder of just how much fun the Rays can be to watch.
Cole Figueroa’s second big league hit was a one-out double in the bottom of the ninth that broke a 0-0 tie. But the best part was how quickly Figueroa went from walk-off hero, to scrum evader, to jump-n-bump party.
Figueroa eventually lost his jersey. But his teammates weren’t done. Let’s watch the Gatorade bath in super slo-mo.
And then there was the whipped cream pie, which is delivered ever so nonchalantly. Meanwhile, Figaro The Cat never fights any of this because you know he loves every second.
It’s been a rough season for the Rays and one consequence of the losing that makes things harder for the fans is that we don’t get to see the fun side of the Rays as often as we are used to.
And let’s face it, when things are going well, the Rays lead the big leagues in FAR (Fun Above Replacement).
