Did Peter Gammons Swipe The Rays?

From an ESPN Insider article:

Be it Donnie Baseball, Girardi, Farrell or whoever, the Yankees will be expected to make the playoffs. That -- and the resources -- sure beat places where the owner cares more about Bud Selig than about his fans or where the mission statement is .500, in due time.

This after hundreds of words about the Yankees and their "decade of suffering", now there's only so many teams he could be referencing; Pirates, Royals, Marlins, and Rays come to mind, but man what an odd place to do so. Am I reading too much into this comment or was this specifically placed as a jab at an A.L. East foe?
