The Tampa Bay Rays always operate with one of the lowest overall payrolls in MLB. This year, they rank 27th out of 30 teams with a combined payroll of approximately $64 million. In their own division, the Blue Jays will spend $177 million, the Red Sox will spend $212 million, and the Yankees will spend $253 million. Yet somehow, despite that disparity, the Rays manage to be extremely competitive. They have consistently scouted and drafted well year after year despite playing in a terrible stadium in front of a small number of fans. Are you a Rays fan? Time to show off what you know! Batter up!
