Manny's countdown to 500 bombs

Yep, Still Awesome

Just thought we'd check in on the Tampa Bay Rays... and yeah, they're still kicking ass.

In fact, they are the proud owners of the best record in baseball at 31-20. Not by a landslide or anything, as they're only a half game ahead of the Boston Red Sox, and every division-winner in the NL already has 30 wins.

Regardless, they are technically the best. And that's pretty badass, all things considered. They've never won more than 70 games in a season, and they still don't draw in the crowd (a little over 12,000 made it to the Memorial Day festivities) but they've emerged victorious in 16 of their last 17 home games.

C'mon people. If you're in the area, get to a game.

I don't believe the Rays have enough to stay in the race for the entire season, but for the present they've been a fun team to watch.
