To the surprise of no one,over the weekend the Rays (Twitter) world chose Ji-Man Choi as the Most Popular Ray right now.
The 29-year-old South Korean native has been with the Rays for less than two years but has already become an instant Rays favorite, and he was the landslide winner of the mini-bracket DRaysBay put out last weekend to determine the most popular Ray right now.
And honestly, it wasn’t even close. Choi won more than 70 percent of the vote in the first-round against Face of the Franchise, Kevin Kiermaier; toppled Future First-Ballot Hall of Famer Wander Franco by over 75 percent of the vote in the semi-finals, and not even Walkoff Willy could do anything to derail Choi’s domination in the final.
The culmination of the Weekend Bracket is today! Who is the most popular Ray on the team today?— DRaysBay (@draysbay) May 31, 2020
Not even close!
So, please take a minute go find some Ji-Man Choi content to put a smile on your face and then go back to the work at hand, dealing with issues far more important.
To celebrate his victory in the poll, please enjoy these top moments from Ji-Man Choi:
