Baseball Season Preview: Tampa Bay Devil Rays [Deadspin]





  1. Beth says:

    I really enjoyed reading this. You were prescient! But what do you have against Juliana Zobrist?

  2. Gus says:

    Nice piece.

    GM Matt Silverman? Is-Was that his title? Whatever happened to him. Is he just business operations? It is all Friedman and Sternberg and to a lesser extent, Hunsicker in the press.

    Speaching of which, is Hunsicker back with the team (I recall his wife passed away). For my money, he has been an unsung hero of this whole run.

  3. MJ says:

    Reid Brignac, "baseballs top ss prospect". Oh well. Lots of hits, very few misses, if any. Interesting time capsule.

  4. Rich says:

    I remember reading this the first time 3 years ago, and this article is what first hooked me on Rays Index. I am an avid daily reader have yet to be dissappointed.

    Thanks for the memory Cork!!
    PS congrats on the new addition to the family!!
