TEAMS: Tampa Bay Rays
ROGER MOONEY “I like to consider myself a coordinated person. I make a living running after baseballs in the outfield, sometimes dodging bullpen mounds, dancing along unpadded walls, even leaping over oncoming teammates on occasion.

Rays' starting pitching depth scary good

Normally, I feel sorry for the Tampa Bay Rays. Not this time. Oh, the Rays still face their usual low-revenue problems while trying to compete with the big-budget New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox in the AL East.
