Rays = Braves?

The fellas over at BlueWorkhorse have written a great post in regard to some of the similarities between the '91 Braves and the '08 Rays.

Unlike most bloggers they've actually fortified their argument with some fairly compelling analysis.

Check it out here.

I remember a SPtimes article a couple months ago about T. Percival walking around all spring training this year with a shirt that read on the back...


i know it's a little more 1995-ish... but it's so more World Series-ish. heh

I just don't think any one of those 3 (or probably anyone really) that is going to come close to replicating Maddux's '95 stats:

19-2, 10 CG, 3 SHO, 1.63 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, 181 K and only 23 BB in over 200 innings.
