Despite taking two of three from the American League West-leading Texas Rangers, the Tampa Bay Rays still haven’t won over every critic.
The Rays hold baseball’s best record. Before Tampa Bay took the series against Texas, they swept the American League Central-leading Minnesota Twins. Before that, a series win over the Boston Red Sox.
What will it take to convince the baseball world and fans that the Rays are for real?
It might take another series win against one of the National League’s best teams, the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Rays travel to the desert for a three-game series starting June 27.
