The Tampa Bay Rays have the second-best record in baseball and had a chance to move a step closer to clinching the American League East Division title Monday night in their
crushed oj can architectural marvel of a dome and they drew their fourth-smallest crowd of the season. (The soundtrack of their season could be the sound of a cricket riding a tumbleweed.)
It's downright demoralizing if you happen to play for the Rays.
"We go out there and play hard for 162 games," Evan Longoria said, "and for the fans to show the kind of support they're showing right now, you kind of wonder what else you have to do as a player."
Had a chance to clinch a post season spot tonight with about 10,000 fans in the stands....embarrassing
Price later tweeted an apology and the Rays lost 4-0 to the Orioles. "Obviously we want to bring a championship to Tampa," Longoria said. "And we'd like more than 12,000 to 15,000 to know about it."
