The Best Team in Baseball – Tampa Bay Rays

by on April 30, 2010   One Comment

Who leads the MLB in runs scored, the AL in ERA, and has a team fielding percentage of .984?

That would be the best team in baseball, the Tampa Bay Rays.

In case you haven’t noticed, the Rays are near the top in almost every statistical category both offensively and defensively.  With the pick-up of Rafael Soriano, the Rays patched their achilles heel over the past couple of seasons – the back-end of the bullpen.  The only problem so far is, they haven’t needed him.  The Rays have scored 142 runs this year and only allowed 72, so Soriano hasn’t had a ton of important innings yet, only locking down 5 saves.
