Go Devil Rays, Go!

I spend quite a bit of time in St Pete and attend some Devil Rays games while down here.  The Devil Rays and their 34 million dollar payroll, $550k median salary and 1.1 million fans compared to the Cubs 94 million dollar payroll, 2.5 million median  salary and 3.1 million fans have a better record than the Cubs as of today at 19-24 compared to the Cubs ar 17-25.

 Please don't tell me about injuries as the Rays have been without Cantu, Lugo, and Huff during the year.

How is it that the Rays, playing in the AL East have a better record than the Cubs?

The Rays go on a very tough road trip facing the Blue Jays, Bo Sox and Yankees. Still, I like my chances that the Rays end up with a better record than these pathetic 2006 Cubs.

I will be tracking this and posting the comparisons through out the year.

Sorry but you know what, Cubs just flat out SUCK!

GO RAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
