Rays pitchers who clinched a post season Series: From Balfour to Price
As a franchise, the Rays seem to love giving a middle finger.
The play in a dump of a stadium that is empty most of the time. They play in the same Division as the Red Sox and Yankees, ergo can't contend. And they lose their best players by way of free agency and salary dumps.
And here we are going into 2012 and chances are they are going to make the playoffs for the fourth time in five years and are LOADED with solid if not spectacular pitching depth.
The team has yet to win it all, but since changing their name 4 years ago, they have gone from laughing stock of baseball to playoff regulars.
A pair of pitchers have clinched a post season series for the Rays. No doubt soon, a new pitcher will be added to this list.
