    Will the Rays win another game this season? Is the question really that ridiculous? Last night the Orioles continued to stake their claim as the fourth best team in the AL East, with a 5-4 win over Tampa Bay. The loss was a season-high ninth straight for the Rays. It […]

    Unfortunately the Devil Rays still have games left at The Trop this season. Otherwise, the race for the first pick in the draft would not be a race at all. The Rays have shown their true metal and have blown past the Royals into “first place” with 7 straight losses […]
