Some of you will have seen my Tampa Bay Rays article should note the article was written last Wednesday. The Rays have now lost 7 games in a row going into the All-Star break falling behind the Boston Red Sox for first place in the AL East. Still, no one expected the Rays to have a 55-39 record and leading the AL Wild Card race three months ago and be half a game behind the defending World Series champions. Yet the Rays are at a disadvantage playing 60% of their games on the road for the remainder of the season.
You might be wondering: Does Aaron think his article is jinxing the Rays? Answer: Yes I do. You might also wonder: Is this rational thinking? Answer: No I don't.
