Plenty of fans are expressing their outrage over at MLB's Facebook page, so if this riles you up like it does me, go let them hear your mind. The Tampa Bay area already has to deal with enough trash talk from the national media; I wouldn't expect MLB itself to join in on the fun.

Not to mention, MLB's current playoff system -- one Wild Card spot, yet multiple small-market teams in the AL East -- is specifically designed to keep the Rays out of the playoffs. I'm sure MLB would be much happier if the Red Sox had made the playoffs, as it'd mean better ratings and more money in their coffers. So maybe the photoshop was meant in good fun and all, but MLB picked the wrong team to poke fun at.

You don't care for the Rays, MLB? Funny, that's what we thought all along.
