Here is a graphic that aired this morning on ESPN’s “Sportscenter.” Rays are 1.5 games behind the Red Sox and one game behind the Yankees with 112 games to go. But apparently that is enough to eliminate the Rays from contention.

OK folks. Let’s pack it up. Somebody put Johnny Damon on eBay, and leave Kelly Shoppach by the curb. We’ll try again next year.

After all…why would anybody think the Rays could win the AL East? We can’t think of ONE REASON. And we definitely couldn’t think of a SECOND REASON.



  1. Jason Wallace says:

    Yeah but when the Red SOx are doing horrible in April, the only thing they talk about is how it's only April and they are going to hit there streak.

  2. Don says:

    In the wonderful world of Sports reporting (ESPN)..there are only TWO teams...I don't care how many times the Rays win it.......Actually a tell all
    about ESPN....and their business model....

    This is why you watch MLB network.

  4. zenny says:

    It's like complaining about the weather.

  5. Jim says:

    Last week, according to ESPN, if the Red Sox had won, they would have tied the Yanks. Let's not mention that the Rays were then tied with the Yanks also. Seriously, Pete nailed it when he said watch MLB network and avoid ESPN at all costs.

  6. bbmern says:

    That four letter network only gives props to the big market teams. Our Rays are like bottom feeders to those blood suckers. Yes to the MLB network!

  7. Griff says:

    The Red Sox are the best team eva!

  8. CC says:

    Buck Fosten , Yankmees suck!

  9. Grace says:

    I always turn off MLB when they start their pandering to Boston/NYY. Turn it off. Ignore it.
    Got a game to go to tonight at the Trop.

    • Grace says:

      And ESPN isn't worth it ever. They are hopeless when it coems to their RedSox/Yankee worship.

      Sometimes I think they should flip a coin in April and give it to one or another and let the rest of baseball have a good time in the World Series for everyone else.

      You know what else I don't like? I don't like all the videos at the Heater which decrease discussion.

    It's the same thing about the Lightning and the Bucs. No respect at all.
