Found April 20, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
Now we’re talking. The Rays continue to put winning teams on the field year after year despite their amazingly low payroll, but they still struggle to sell tickets. Putting a strip club inside Tropicana Field probably wouldn’t go over all that well, but the Rays are fortunate enough to have a popular local strip club working with them in an attempt to boost sales. As you can see from the photo above that Darren Rovell shared with us, Thee Dollhouse gentleman’s club in Tampa is offering a free drink for those who can show a Rays ticket. Since the Rays offer tickets for $9.00 and strip clubs typically have astronomically high drink prices, this works out to be a tremendous deal. If someone told you that $9.00 would buy you a baseball game, a drink, and a fantastic show, you probably wouldn’t think twice before opening your wallet.

  • Trust me, no one goes to a strip club and only spends money on ONE drink.
  • That 9.00 ticket will cost men more than that in the long run. Divorces are expensive!!!

Rays

  Do you own Matt Moore? I do. In fact I own him in a lot of places. Talk to me, weren’t there some spots in your draft that it was him or Yu Darvish? Granted it was a rainout but who do you want? The answer is Moore, IMO.   I watched his whole outing this Friday night with much anticipation. In fact, you couldn’t find a pitcher with better odds to win considering the Rays...
