GDT #24: I'm rubber (match), you're Blue (Jays)

This is a statement of fact.

The Rays look to take the final game of the series before playing Los Angeles with a series win at home. That would be something, considering I still feel like the Rays are something like 69 games below .500.

Why do I feel this way? Am I naturally a pessimist? I mean I am but is that all? I wonder if baseball's greatest pessimists, Kansas City Royals fans, are undergoing some sort of crazy mutation now that they are a good team. Like, pessimism has been the core of their identity for maybe 20 years, and now out of nowhere they're, like, the best team in baseball, according to playoffs or whatever. That's weird.

Actually maybe Chicago Cubs fans are the pessimists. That makes a little more sense. Don't read that above paragraph.
