Last Friday, I was a guest on a small internet radio program, talking the Rays on a show that otherwise focuses on the Mets. I don't understand the logic either, but I enjoyed it; it's always fun talking baseball with another die-hard fan, especially those that are obviously devotees of the game. While I was unfortunately reminded why I'm a writer and not an orator - goodness, English is so much tougher when you have to speak it - the host asked me a question that really got me pondering: what's been the most surprising thing about the Rays' season?
That's such an easy question, yet one that's surprisingly challenging to answer. And so I'm now curious - what's been the most pleasant surprise for you this year? We can hark on about the negative surprises, but I prefer to look on the bright side of life. My answer will be coming in one hour, so until then, happy debating.
