Rays at Orioles

It's been a while, but I think I should bring back the "series preview poll."

A message to fellow rays fans: step off of your ledge. It's only 6 games into the season. The good news is, your Tampa Bay Rays are .500, middle of the pack, treading water. Let's take a quick look at where the rest of the (Devil) Rays teams stood after 6 games:

1998: 4-2

1999: 3-3

2000: 2-4

2001: 1-5

2002: 3-3

2003: 2-4

2004: 3-3

2005: 3-3

2006: 3-3

2007: 2-4

2008: 3-3

2009: 3-3

So, 3-3 and after 6 games has happened more then a few times throughout our short history. So, are you ready to fold up shop and give up on the 2010 season?
