Okay, give a DRays fan a high five. Look at the Spring standings
Tampa Bay - best record in baseball. And standing up to the bullying Yanks to boot. This season may be fun!

Hey, at least let me have a little enjoyment here!

3. Everybody else in town is at the First Church of Titties and Prime Rib*?
*based on my observation that every block in Tampa has either a church, a tittie bar or a steak house, this is my evil scheme to run the place

4. My old roommate's from there
and that combination would probably be the only thing that would ever get him into a church.

5. I think it must be the name change.
They're only know as the Rays now, aren't they?

No more "D-Rays", no more D grades. :shrug:

7. As if spring records had anything to do
with how a ball club's gonna do in the regular season.

For most of the spring schedule, you've got a buncha guys playing who'll be in Double-A on March 30. It's only in the last week that you start to see what'll be pretty much the Opening Day lineups. That's half of what spring training's for to give the managers and coaches a look at the rooks in game situations.

Spring's the only time I pay more attention to how individual players are doing. From April through October it's about the ball club, but March is like Who's Who.

But, by all means enjoy it while you can. That's another of the great things about baseball over 162 games, there's a lot to cheer about, even with the suckiest of clubs.



(Footnote: Giants and Mariners start in about 15 minutes. And it's on teevee.) :bounce:
