There's only one thing in this world that Joe Maddon likes more than wine and shuffling the lineup: themed road-trips. He's been doing over the past few years every time the Rays make a long road trip, and he feels it helps keep the group loose and relaxed. The seasons are long enough as it is -- why not have some fun along the way while you're at it?
The Rays have already had a couple themed road-trips this year, including a "Seattle Grunge" one recently, but I think their most recent one takes the cake. On their way back from the West Coast last night, the Rays all dressed up in "Pajama Party" attire. Some players choose to go for the classy plaid look, while a few decided to go wild:

Oh, Ben Zobrist -- that is some look, and I'm not sure if it's flattering. And David Price, that's a lot of chest you're showing there...
