The NCAA has just released it’s yearly March Madness bracket, who would win Tampa Bay Rays Madness?

The Tampa Bay Rays have a history dating back to 1998, so who would win a March Madness style bracket of Rays players?

Using Baseball-reference I have compiled a bracket of 64 Tampa Bay Rays with the goal in mind of getting the number one player.

The committee was @Rylan_Stiles on Twitter if you have any complaints.

There will be corresponding Twitter poll questions starting on Monday, March 18th on the Rays Colored Glasses Twitter (@RaysColoGlasses) The winner of the polls will survive and advance to the next round until we crown the best Ray of all time.

However, the term best is subjective.

In my opinion, this should not be a “vote on the best Ray to ever play” it is about fan favorites and fun. However, someone else might vote based on who they personally feel was the best or more productive player not just a fan favorite.

If you do not have twitter, feel free to fill out your bracket below, but we much prefer the Twitter interaction for this specific exercise. Twitter is a fun easy way for us to connect with you all!

I think that finalizes the formalities and now let’s get onto the madness!
