Today is a down day for more than half of the teams in baseball and worse it is a down day for the Rays. I have to get my Rays fix because a game is not on, so I wait for something, anything.
I got my fix when I was watching Sportscenter and the Diamond Cuts feature with Buster Olney came on… He was basically asked what he thought of the O’s and Rays being at the top of the AL East and who would last. I was pleasently surprised to hear that he believes that the Rays have what it takes to stay competitive with the Yanks and Red Sox. The pitching staff and good postion players to hang on and at least compete for the rest of the season. I am siked, when Buster Olney says the Rays have what it takes it has to be true, right?
With Evan Longoria, Carl Crawford, Carlos Pena, BJ Upton, Kaz (when he comes back), ok I could name the rest of the team on this one, I don’t see any reason (other than becoming complacient or a sudden loss of a key arm in the bullpen) the Rays can’t at least finish the season over .500. This could be the year…
