Anyone feel like the year's Rays will end up being 2008's version of the 05 Orioles? The O's were actually 13 games over at this point in '05.
The team just seems to find a way to loose lately. The start has been rough but the season is nowhere close to being lost.
The Yankees are rich. According to Juan Gonzalez the Yankees pulled in 188 million in gate receipts alone last year (up from 122 in 04) and are projected to bring in upwards of 252 million next year. Add in the lack of a rent payment (14 mil) and increases revenues from owning concession and the Yankees will have plenty of dough to improve the team with.
