"Don't worry about what other teams are doing, don't worry about the amount of money they are spending...to me without all the chemicals, the other influences in our game, I think its about the team that executes better on a nightly basis....
"I try to point out these kind of items and stay away from the names on the backs of other teams uniforms...So we work hard to play the game properly, not make mistakes--we're very big on run prevention as you know so or the fact that they spend more money than us"
From Jim Rome:
The Rays are who we thought they were, not the guys who were trying to knock over the monster in Fenway. That's not where these guys live, they were built to do it with pitching, speed and defense, and it was all on Game 2 of the World Series. They don't wait for someone to pop a three runner, they play small ball, not long ball.
How does someone cover sports for a living and still know so little?
