The other day, I mentioned that the Tampa Bay Rays have decided to join their local baseball brothers in suckage, but they’ve notched it up. Now they’ve traded Steven Souza, Jr. to the Gritty Snakes. What they got in return is irrelevant. In the course of a few months, they’ve gotten rid of the Actual Face of the Franchise, their number two pitcher, and three of their most successful offensive players. The only people left are Kevin Keirmeier (the owner of the prettiest eyes in the American League) and Chris Archer. And how long will these fellows be ballin’ in Florida?
As far as the Feesh go, they too have garnered some attention as well when Nationals star Bryce Harper (or Royce Harpler, your choice) rightly had an opinion (one that many of us – myself included – agree with) and then Don Mattingly – skipper of the Feesh – went HAM.
For the record, here’s what Bryce said:
And then Mattingly went off the rails, basically telling Bryce to keep his team’s name outcha filthy mouf.
I don’t know, you guys. This is pretty messed up. The entire state of Florida is on notice, I guess. Baseball is being stripped away, piece by piece, until all you’ll have left are some under-15 kids’ teams.
