One of the lower market teams in the MLB is off to their hottest start in years. leading to them currently having the second best record in the league.

     The Tampa Bay Rays are shocking the baseball world with their extremely strong start to the season.  The Rays currently sit in second place in the American League with fourteen wins and eight losses, putting them only a half game back of the top spot.

    The Tampa Bay Rays are a professional baseball team in the MLB based in Florida.  The Rays have always been an average team and rarely make the postseason. However, this season the Rays are proving all of the haters wrong with their strong start and look to continue this success as the games go on.

     Many people projected the Rays to struggle this year after they traded away many of their top tier players for younger players with a lot of upside.  This worked very well for them as many of their players that are not well known perform very well and help lead the team to many wins.

     You can watch the Rays get some more wins in their upcoming series against the Kansas City Royals starting Monday, April 22, 2019..
