    Tuesday, April 1st.

    The RAYS got the 2014 season off to a great start yesterday, Opening Day for the MLB season, smashing the Toronto Blue Jays 9-2 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.

    Opening Day Lineup.
    1. LF David DeJesus
    2. RF Will Myers
    3. 2B Ben Zobrist
    4. 3B Evan Longoria
    5. 1B James Loney
    6. CF Desmond Jennings
    7. DH Matt Joyce
    8. C Jose Molina
    9. SS Yunel
    P David Price

    In this morning's Tampa Tribune they mentioned the RAYS are playing with the Big Boys when it comes to payroll in the AL East. A significant difference.


    Yankees $240 Million.

    Red Sox $150 Million.

    Blue Jays $127 Million.

    Orioles $102 Million.

    And

    RAYS $80 Million.

    I always thought it was cool that TB named the team after me! I have a RAYS tag on the front of my car. And of course lots of GATOR stuff everywhere else! :)

    The real test of the Ray's management, farm system, etc will come when all the top 3 picks they earned from sucking will have graduated through the organization. This kind of team won't be that cheap.
