Rays Punch The Bully Right In The Nose

Updates will be limited over the next day or two. Mrs. Professor seems to think I need to hang out with friends and family just because they came all this way for some silly ceremony.

  • Evan Longoria was named AL Player of the Week. [MLB]
  • Conveniently, Rocco Baldelli has come down with a strained groin allowing the Rays to send Rocco out on a new 20-day rehab assignment since this is a new injury. [Tampa Tribune]
  • Joe Maddon said that he is not concerned about the yelling match with Troy Percival on the mound in the 9th and that it was not unexpected. [MLB]
  • Carl Crawford says that his knee is better but that it is not 100%. [MLB]
  • The New York Sun says that Yankees fans should worry. Boston and Tampa Bay are the class of the division and will be for years to come. [New York Sun]
  • The Boston Herald calls the Rays "the best team in baseball."...Well, they beat the Sox and lead the division, they must be the best team. [Boston Herald]
  • Rays Homeplate says the Rays "will play in October." [Rays Homeplate]
  • Everybody wants to be the Rays now. [Pittsburgh Tribune-Review]

The local news/talk radio station had a poll up on their website all day yesterday through this morning that asked "Which team is a bigger threat to the Red Sox: Rays or Yankees?". Final results this morning were Rays 68%, Yankees 32%. The poll was put up yesterday morning before last night's game.

If you want a good read, go to the debate article on ESPN by Jayson Stark. Every Rays supporter seems to be well-spoken and constantly makes good points. Meanwhile, Red Sox fans throw out false information and ridiculous comments. Stark does a great job of setting them straight.

The best record in baseball is a lot different than the best team in baseball. It's important to show class and "act like you've been there before." Nothing matters until the end of September.

I suppose that red sox fans for the last 4 years have acted "like they have been there before"?

if there was ever a fanbase that acted with less class, I don't know it.
