Tough Road For Rays
After the Rays took a 1-0 loss Thursday in the rubber game against Seattle, Pat Burrell summed up the Rays’ situation best when he said: “We’re making it tough on ourselves.”
He went on to say that the Rays were going to have to tough it out to fight their way out of their current plight. And looking at where they are right now at 6-10, it will be a tough fight indeed.
The first pitch is about to be thrown in the first game of a three-game series against the A’s in Oakland, which is a tough place to play. After playing the A’s, the Rays will head to Minnesota for three against the Twins — also at a tough place to play.
While I don’t believe a disastrous road trip would be the end for this year’s Rays, I can see a winning road trip serving as a rallying point for the team to get back on track. But the Rays do have their work cut out for them.
