The Devil Rays' One Fan Thinks They Should Go After Bonds

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

I bet you didn't know that Dick Vitale is a Rays Fan did you? Neither did I, but it makes sense...he's in their demographic (65+ in Florida). Well Dick Vitale will be the first person to tell you that steroids are bad, but Bonds in Tampa? Sure!

I love how he just wants to completely change the way Tampa has done things for....well their entire existence....and start blowing money on over-the-hill power hitters. Hey, we're never going to beat the Sox or Yankees but let's throw about $20+ million (just a guess based on last year's salaries) out there for the hell of it! Good thinking Vitale.

the irony here is that the "Rays" changed their name for seemingly moral reasons, but then chase after the biggest cheater in baseball...a guy who took illegal drugs and lied during his chase for the most valuable record in sports.

tampa bay bullsh*t rays.

wow. first, bonds is by no means over the hill as a hitter, so DH would be fine. second, how is it we know he is the biggest cheater, and not just the one you happened to be offended by the most?

They changed their name not because of their want to disassociate from the word "devil". But for a tribute to the great Ray Pruitt. You may remember as the guy that pushed Donna Martin down the stairs.

Not that you care, but Bonds said he'd take $10 million.

But even $10 million averages out to about 5000 more fans at $25 bucks a head to cover the cost. Does Bonds warrant that?

TB's entire payroll is $24,123,500. I can't see them giving Bonds his "discounted" price of $10MM.

Thanks Bruce for elaborating on what I was saying. It's not that he's not productive, a team with a chance could certainly use him. It just doesn't make sense.

"how is it we know he is the biggest cheater, and not just the one you happened to be offended by the most?"

IMO the biggest cheater is the one who's cheating results in the biggest advantage. Maybe he didn't take as many shots in the ass as a guy like Player X, but he took the all time and in a season home run record...his name will live on forever because he cheated. Maybe the steriods have nothing to do with it but if they don't help then why do so many players take them? Risk their health and their reputation for something that "doesn't actually do anything"...i've never bought that arguement.

To answer your question, it's both.
