Rays’ record slide

The Tampa Bay Rays will be out to dodge a dubious record tonight in Camden Yards: Longest losing streak in history for a team coming off a World Series appearance.
The still-reigning AL champs have dropped 11 straight, which matches an implosion endured by four previous World Series alumnae as revealed by MLB.com research:
  • 1998 Florida Marlins
  • 1986 Kansas City Royals
  • 1929 St. Louis Cardinals
  • 1915 Philadelphia Athletics
The Rays were already in free-fall before Carlos Pena cracked two fingers on a CC Sabathia pitch, so don’t go blaming that injury for their disappearance.
Guess one might say that for Joe Maddon,  whose post-2008 celebration included nuptials, the honeymoon is over.
