Not long ago, the Tampa Bay Rays were horrible. The Devil Rays, as they were called then, were the laughing stock of Major League Baseball. Rays fans wished that one day their team could contend with the big boys. But now, even when they are slugging it out with the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, Rays fans are nowhere to be found. Inexplicably, Rays fans are the worst in baseball despite having arguably the game’s most exciting team.
Finally, the Rays players are talking about how much their fans suck. The final straw was on Monday when less than 13,000 fans came to the ballpark to witness the Rays try to clinch a playoff spot. Superstars Evan Longoria and David Price could no longer bite their tongues. They both talked about how embarrassing the like of support is at this pivotal point of the season.
Said David Price on Twitter: “Had a chance to clinch a post season spot tonight with about 10,000 fans in the stands….embarrassing.”
Added Evan Longoria: “It’s a tough situation for us. A lot of the visiting teams come in and wonder where are all the fans. It’s actually a little bit embarrassing for us. We’re one game away from clinching a postseason spot. We have enough guys in this room to celebrate with, but we’d love to celebrate it with the fans, too.”
Price and Longoria are absolutely right. They’ve gotten some heat for their words but that is from people who are afraid of the truth. The Tampa Bay Rays fans suck.
End of story.
