No, they're just the Rays now. They had an exorcism in the off-season and lost the "Devil." I guess this shows how much it can help when the Devil is shaken out of you.

So in order to form a more fearsome image, they kept the flat bottom dwelling fish part, and lost the scary devil part?!?

Yeah, it wasnt looking too pleasant.

Worst job on the field has to be the lead off batter for the Sox after the Rays have been hitting.

Since you asked, I have to ask in return:
How the heck does a sock hold a bat?

Oh, for the record, Curt Schilling's World Series win with his ankle tendon staple gunned to his sock bleeding all over the mound was the most awesome performance I've seen in baseball in my short lifetime. Mental toughness defined.

They still suck, though.

Monday night my company held a dinner at the Top of the Hub. A terrific view of the city and of Fenway Park.

They are a a tough young team. We are lovin' it. Last post-season race I was really into was the 1982 Milwaukee-St. Lous series (Cardinals won). There's increasing talk of a new stadium (yeah, right). Young new owner (who was a hedge fun millionaire who got out in time. Manager of baseball operations is a 30-something. Trying to score some tickets to post season play, but not easy.


And personally, I'd rather be called a Ray than be named after an article of sweaty clothing worn on the feet.

Next up: Superbowl. The highway ramp construction around the airport is fast and furious.
