Rays Notes: Joyce, Ex-Rays, TV Rating

After a series of downers, here’s a very positive tweet from Matt Joyce.

Simply put, the Rays desperately need offense. Matt Joyce is the best bat they have not named Evan Longoria and he’s been out since June. They hope that having a healthy Joyce in the lineup can ignite their offense. It’s frustrating to get great pitching and consistently lose games. Hopefully Joyce can help change that. A couple of ex-Rays gave some nice comments about their time with the Rays.

It seems like every ex-Rays player has glowing things to say and it’s always good to hear. And finally, especially for all of you who think that the Rays have no fans, look at this Marc Topkin tweet.

Now imagine how much it would go up if the Rays were actually playing well!
