No More Monkeys On Our Backs

In the last two weeks, the Tampa Bay Rays won a game (two, actually, in a row) in Cleveland, the Rays got their very own no-hitter.


And after last night's as-close-as-you-can-get-to-a-playoff-atmosphere-in-August victory over the Yankees, they broke an 11-game won a game Friday losing streak.  That's right, before last night, the Rays hadn't won on a Friday since May.


Now hopefully we can enjoy the excitement of the stretch run without having to listen to the "Rays are the first/last/only team to..." nonsense.
