The Rays Confidence Graph is a look at how much confidence Rays fans have in the Tampa Bay Rays. The graph is designed to give us a look at how our emotional bias as Rays fans fluctuates through time. The “confidence” in the team is an inexact measure of how fans feel about the team’s current strength as well as how much confidence fans have in Joe Maddon and the franchise for the next 3-4 years…

Notes on the graph…

  • Just prior to the playoffs, confidence in the 2010 Rays was 9.0. AS we now look towards 2011, confidence has fallen all the way to 6.7.  The most common response was “7” at 32.0%.
  • Confidence in the future went from 7.4 to 7.2. The most common response was “8” at 26.3%.
  • Confidence in Joe Maddon went from 8.2 to 7.0. The most common response was “8” at 24.1%.
