Update: Go to sleep happy, wake up groggy… Well, it was a nice run, but with the Rangers 4-3 loss, the Rays are officially (mathematically) out of the playoff hunt. The emphasis officially shifts to “Rodney Watch: 2012,” and ending the season strongly. One would assume that the next two games will be the last for Carlos Peña and BJ Upton, at least in a Rays uniform. Get out to the Trop and send them off in style folks!
I’m not sure about the other Raysbaseball.co folks, but my emphasis now changes and I’ll be writing about the Rays Hot-Stove rumors shortly. Who we should expect to see on the roster next season? I’m on it! In any case, enjoy these last two games, and Let’s Go Rays! I love my small market team!
