How can you have an "all-time team" when the franchise has only been around as one year longer then RJ has been born? Well, it's simple. Just like with the "Greatest (Devil) Rays to Ever Wear..." series we will celebrate where the Rays have been, where the Rays are, and where the Rays will go. The following polls will discuss a (Devil) Rays all-time team.
What are the rules? A player HAS to have AT LEAST played 100 games for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays or Rays. If you feel that a player has been left off of the poll unjustly, then make a case for him. All players who have taken the field for the (Devil) Rays will be mention, just not voted on.
Is this poll all about defense? No, not really. This poll is just about voting for your favorite catcher, shortstop, rightfielder...
