COVERAGEDraysBayRays IndexBless You Boys

After a road trip where the team went 5-4, the Rays return to Tropicana Field tonight for an 11 game homestand opening with the Detroit Tigers as opponents.  

The big story of the week ahead is the looming MLB trade deadline.  Rumblings have persisted for a while about the Rays looking to make a move...  But what that will be, what position, and at what cost remains elusive and up for speculation.

DraysBay gives you the only instructiosn you need for the coming days in their series preview:

Strap on tight, it's going to be a crazy week.
