Best Of The Worst

June 24th, 2016


Hey, it could be worse!

Don’t call Joe crazy, but there is a silver lining to the thunderheads parked above the Rays these days.

As bad as their 9 1/2-game deficit in the American League East may seem, it’s the smallest hole for a last-place team in the majors. No other scrub trails by fewer than 16 games in their division.

So, um, the Rays have that going for them.

OK, so it’s not much. And it’s entirely possible Tampa Bay’s deficit reaches a dirty double digits this weekend in Baltimore.

Following the Rays these days is an experience in gallows humor. Injuries! A punchless offense! Struggling starters! A fried bullpen!

Come one, come all!

Go ahead, shake your head. It’s rough. But realize it could be way worse … at least for now.

    Tough to find anything positive these days and yes, they will be double digits behind Baltimore after this series. Looking forward to the trade deadline where all the deadbeats give up their veterans for prospects.

    Bad defense has caused starters imo to lose faith that a play will be made. Then trying to do too much, try to throw to the edges of the plate causing too many walks, leading to further problems. The Rays MUST get better defensively, especially at short, or the starters will never live up to the potential we all thought they have. The pitchers know their defense sucks, it’s easy to see the looks on their faces with every error. WAKE UP SILVERMAN and get a clue!!

    Joe Rays Fan should’ve started this blog/website a few years ago when this team was actually relevant! When they had a front office that knew what they were doing and a manager(who’s team is in first place and kinda made up of the same players that worked when he was here and I forgot, their chasing history and will probably be playing for a World Series)!

    Maybe the team should change their name to the Tampa Bay Death Rays or X Rays or Pay Rays.
