Congratulations, Bossman Junior

It's rare that a team playing out the streak give you something to really root for, but credit the Rays for showing that there is still life left in this organization. Last night, the Rays made a statement to the Yankees. They not only kept CC Sabathia from getting his 20th win, they punched the Yankees in mouth with a good old fashioned butt-whuppin'

And, of course, the star of the night was Mr. Melvin Upton, aka Bossman, Junior.  The Bossman continued his hot streak in games that don't count by hitting for the cycle. Watching the game you could just feel it coming, especially after Bossman got his homer. The crowd at the Trop gave Bossman a standing ovation as he headed into the history books as the first Ray ever to hit for the cycle.

Overall it was a nice win for the Rays, but they still have a long way to go.  The Yankees are a real good team and the Rays are going to have to play great baseball to keep up next year

Lets hope its not a "no presure" reaction to a meaningless game!
In Aug. & early Sept when we needed them he was useless...but maybe his success can carry over to next year...cause looks like we are stuck...
unless the Yankees were impressed enough to give us Teixeira, Rodriguez or Jeter...
Fat chance...Huh!!
