PLAYERS: David DeJesus
TEAMS: Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder David DeJesus was lucky some idiotic fan sitting down the left field line had terrible aim last night, otherwise DeJesus would have been covered in nasty tobacco juice. Immediately after recording the second out of the eighth inning in Cleveland last night night, DeJesus had a makeshift spittoon hurled in his direction by a nearby fan. Fortunately, the spitter landed a few feet in front of DeJesus, who did not at all seem pleased by the incident.   Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

He won 26 of those outings and then picked up three...

Red Sox-Rays ALDS Preview: David Price, Matt Moore Have Potential to Make Life Difficult for Boston

Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays ALDS Preview

While it is only the divisional series, it’s still extremely fitting that the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays are set to meet up in the playoffs, isn’t it?
