LADY AT THE BAT: The Rays Are Driving Me Crazy

The Rays Are Driving Me Crazy

I have a confession to make: I am a spoiled Yankee fan. I am used to seeing the Yankees, at this point in the season, enjoying a division or a Wild Card lead, not tied for first place with a team that just won't go away.

This team that just won't go away, the Tampa Bay Rays, has been in a flat-footed tie with the Yankees for nine eight days now. Nine Eight days! It's driving me crazy. The Rays are like that rash that just won't get better, or a stray cat that keeps coming back, just when you thought you'd gotten rid of it.

If this keeps up I may start having nightmares about them. That ugly BRayser jacket might start showing up in my dreams:

The Yankees have six games remaining with the Rays. Here's hoping they can get rid of these stray cats and their rash coats once and for all.

You have to love the Rays. They are tomorrows Yankees.

Just think of the pride and futility that we Ray's fans must endure.

Our total payroll is less than the Yankee's starting pitchers.

In the future, the Yankees will have the best of the Ray's lineup through free agency. The Ray's will have to draft and develop at a greater level to compete in the future with the best of thier prior players.

You should thank the Ray's for (1) being a development team and (2) giving competition that requires the Yankees and Red Sox to buy better players for their fans.
