TAMPA BAY RAYS, 90-72 (3rd in AL East)
The Tampa Bay Rays are trending upward. After finishing 3rd in the AL East at 90-72 and Kevin Cash finishing 3rd in voting for Manager of the Year, the Rays are trying to show the world they are for real. But playing in one of the toughest divisions in baseball and having to face the Red Sox and the Yankees on a regular basis will keep this team humble and force them to be patient. But no matter the division, the Rays are putting together the pieces to be competitive for years to come.
