The Rays aren’t doing so well lately, and it’s cost them. They’re now tied with the Red Sox, and dropping in our rankings. After Mark Teixeira’s grand slam, the Yankees are back on top alone. Now, they’ll visit Arizona, for three easy wins. The 2001 World Series probably still has the Yankees hating. The Rangers […]
