Rays Tank: Worst team?

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The Rays now hold the worst record in the American League.

Strangely, though, for how bad it may feel like they've played, by run differential they're only middle of the pack. I'm sure that will make you feel good about their chances.

The biggest Rays news, though (if you weren't watching yesterday), is that Wil Myers has been sent to the disabled list with a sprained wrist. Jerry Sands was called up to replace him.

David Laurila talked to Joe Maddon about the Rays-Red Sox brawl and Jonny Gomes.
