That would be cool. I'm sure at least another 5K fans would show up for the series.

The Rays and Astros have had talks about a possible Wilson Ramos trade. Apparently, the Rays want Tucker or Whitley but will settle on the Astros best SS prospect if need be.

^ heard about a possible Ramos trade but that shortstop bit is hilarious if true. I swear to God the Rays would just bat 9 shortstops in the order and put them all out on the field

Not at all shocked. We only trade for middle infielders.

Blake Snell is now an All-Star. Good for him... and hopefully fewer outings like yesterday lol

Also, we've suspended our promotion with Papa Johns(Which was like 50% off Pizza if the Rays scored 6)

Heard someone on radio the other day yelling at radio host and fans for not giving more attention to Rays. To play devil's advocate to that, why get excited for this team when you know all these pieces are going to be traded in the next couple years? Ramos is already rumored to be going to Houston, possibly. Snell is probably going to get a big payday offer from another team. I'm sure Cron will be in trade talks soon.

As far as the new stadium goes, I love it. But I'm not holding my breath it's going to pass. Stu wants the public pay for most of it, which is not a good sign it's going to pass.

Pretty nice streak by our rookie Bauers. 2 HR/7 RBIs in the past 2 games, and 7 hits in the past 3(With 6 runs scored)

Definitely our best rookie this year, though our only other rookie of note Willy Adams just got demoted to AAA

Apparently, you aren't paying attention.

If you actually looked at the standings (makes me think you don't actually follow sports), you'd see there is roughly a 0% chance of the Devil Ray's making the playoffs.

And that's when they were 4 games over .500.

Even 10 games over, they'd have NO chance.

That said...I thought they'd be one of the worst teams in MLB, this year. IF they finish with 85 wins (they won't), this would HAVE to be considered a GREAT year.

Ramos is done for a while...and even if he wasn't, he'd be traded. That's a big blow to our offense.

They've done well this year. Good to see the young guys come up. Adames is the next. Hechy is about to go. Probably Archer as well.

I WISH I could spend money on this team. I listen to games on the radio. I live FIVE BLOCKS from the stadium...and I won't give Slumlord Stewie, ONE, SINGLE PENNY of my cash. He's the new Jeff Lauria. We're about to get fleeced on a new stadium...and with this guy...we're gonna be the latest Marlins. We're about to get a new TV contract AND stadium...and we'll STILL be one of the lowest payrolls in MLB. MARK MY WORDS.

I wish this team, with this owner, would just leave.


Jeff Vinick...HELP!!!
