So far this season, that simply won’t work.
As of this writing, the Rays have the best record in all of Major League Baseball. And guess what? They have the lowest payroll in the league as well.
Their payroll is a paltry $21.8 million. The next closest team has a payroll that is more than double that amount.
You couldn’t tell the Rays are tearing it up based on their attendance. It flat out stinks. C’mon Tampa Bay fans, represent.
