Bright Spots: All-Time (Devil) Rays Team... Shortstop


Previous Polls: The Greatest (Devil) Rays to Ever Wear...


All-Time (Devil) Rays Team as voted by the bloggers of Draysbay:

Catcher: Toby Hall (50% of the votes)

First Base: Carlos Pena (71 % of the votes)

Second Base: Akinori Iwamura (72% of the votes)



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...

Today, we'll talk about a midget* crossing guard's favorite position: shortstop.  Here is a list off all who have played for the Greats off of Gandy.:
