A capacity crowd at Tropicana Field is 31,042 and, as you would imagine, the fourth place Tampa Bay Rays haven’t come close to filling the place since Opening Day.

This weekend, the Rays take on the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Hanging outside of the park is a flag emblazoned with “Devil Rays”, Tampa Bay’s former moniker. The club isn’t too happy about that.
