Consider This...

In 2004, the Rays definitively most successful season, they won a total of 70 games. Last year, a total of 66 wins. In '02, they mustered a scant 55 wins. Now, at the halfway point of what future generations will refer to as simply The Season, the Rays have a total of 49 wins.

That's 21 less than the best season.

That's 17 less than last year.

That's 6 less than '02.

The kicker: There are 54 games left as of Sunday night. If we go a paltry .500 in that span, we end the season at around 76-59.

So what does this mean to Joe Blow Rays Fan? Well, to me, it means that I'm declaring this season a premature success. I submit for proof:

Edit: Yeah, I know how many games there are within the season; but it's late, and I'm tired, but too excited about RAYS NUMBA ONE to be what the ancients referred to as "entirely or even somewhat accurate" in my "calculations."
