Rays walk it off — Courtesy: DRaysBay
I think it's pretty telling when the Rays get compliments from ESPN, especially when the article contains no mention of our duly noted attendance woes. Which, by the way, hasn't presented itself that much except for this last series against the Angels where the most attended game was the finale with 15,417 people in attendance (Tuesday had 14,933 in attendance; Wednesday had 14,638).
I, personally, have noticed our bats have had a little more pop to them lately. Remember the game earlier this week with David Price's CG Shutout and the Rays four home runs, one being Carlos Pena's 1000th hit? I do. The important thing, obviously, is that the Rays keep the hot bats swinging.
Remember that we start a 3 game series in Dallas/Fort Worth today with the Rangers. This is the same team that has eliminated us from the playoffs two years in a row in the ALDS without hardly breaking a sweat. The Rays will need those bats over the next three days.
Let's not make Schoenfield look like a fool this time, shall we? He actually deserves to be right.
