The Rays Tank: 24-41

Tweets and links only. This is getting too painful for words. And that's not even dramatic.

I think even Joe is nearing the, "willing to try anything for a win" point:

- "The Rays are farther out of first place than the Cubs, Twins, Phillies, and Astros proving that Bud Selig has, in fact, dropped the standings."

- Josh Reddick isn't the only player with a memorable walkup song right now...I see you, Tony Sanchez.

- "It got pretty intense there for a while, I don't know," Jaso said. "There is a certain respect you have to have for this game ... and when I feel someone doesn't see that or respect the game as such, it doesn't sit well with me. I really don't like it. And that's what I felt: I felt there was disrespect for the game coming from one player." - You tell Manny Machado, John Jaso. Someone apparently has to.

- Fact: I have some unexplainable annoyance with Taylor Swift. Always have, always will; but the impromptu T-Swift singalong among MLB accounts on Twitter yesterday made my day.
