Season Previews: Tampa Bay Rays

Now that the season is under way, it's time for one of our favorite things in all the world: Season Previews. Two years ago, they began as a serious analysis and ended up as half-assed haiku. We're just gonna go with what we know. Moving right along with our preview of the American League East, here is our look at the 2009 Tampa Bay Rays.

Rays of BadasseryThey changed their team name
And it changed their luck around
Almost won it all

The Bat is a Ray!
Evan Longoria is
All kinds of badass

Shields, Kazmir, Garza
Sonnanstine is also great
Um... and Jeff Niemann?

We love Bartlett too
Up the middle with Aki
Pena's at first base

Carl Crawford is
A giant monster of doom
On SI covers

Gross and Kapler's moms
Went and named both their sons Gabe
Is that confusing?

Percival will close
Or at least give it a shot
Upton's out for now

Will the Rays journey
To the Fall Classic and win?
They have what it takes!
