The Friday Breakdown is a Devil Ray

With the stock market rumbling up and down over our heads like an old wooden rollercoaster, baseball wends its way through its schedule undisturbed. Fiscal ruin may be just around the corner, but for some, the only words that matter are “Play Ball”.

The Devil Rays knocked the Tigers out of their wildcard berth for the moment by winning the final 2 games of that series. Being reduced to giantkillers is perhaps just what this team needs right now. And starting on Monday, when the Rays play the Red Sox again, there might be no better time to flex our muscles. Imagine if the Red Sox’s lead is down to 3 games by Monday, just imagine. Will the Devil Rays knock the Red Sox out of 1st. place? Will they?
