I have been rooting for the Rays ever since the Yankees were clearly going to be eliminated from contention.
I’ve always had a little weak spot for those guys. Lovable losers with tons of talent, lots of bad breaks (I’m looking at you, Rocco Baldelli), and the chip on your shoulder that comes from getting your ass regularly kick by two superstar older brothers (the Yanks and the Sox).
And now they’ve got mohawks.
I like the Phillies too, but it’s all about the Rays right now. David Price, my friends. David Price.
