The devil is in the details

Devil Rays sweep Red Sox with 3-0 win

rays-200.jpgST. PETERSBURG, Florida (Reuters) – James Shields pitched a two-hit shutout on Sunday as the Tampa Bay Devil Rays completed a three-game sweep of the Boston Red Sox with a 3-0 victory.

The headline on this article is so WRONG!!! Did your editor even READ the article?? Did he LOOK at the headline?? The team is no longer refered to as the “Devil” Rays. They have dropped any reference to Devil from the stadium, uniforms, locker room, everything.

Heck, the featured picture even shows clearly “RAYS” right across the front.


Please let your reporter know that the correct name for the MLB team in Tampa Bay, Florida is the RAYS, not the Devil Rays. Maybe he hasn’t been covering baseball since the name change was announced, so please let him know.

Lots of people noticed this one. We are aware of the change, and hope we don’t make this error again: GBU Editor
