Could GOD be the reason for the Rays' 2008 success?

    Let's see: pre-2008 -- The Tampa Bay DEVIL (i.e. SATAN) Rays
    1998: 63 99 .389
    1999: 69 93 .426
    2000: 69 92 .429
    2001: 62 100 .383
    2002: 55 106 .342
    2003: 63 99 .389
    2004: 70 91 .435
    2005: 67 95 .414
    2006: 61 101 .377
    2007: 66 96 .407

    Team officially changes name to Tampa Bay Rays, drops reference to SATAN ...

    2008: 97 65 .599, AL East Champs, ALDS Winners, lead Boston 3-1 in ALCS

    Is it possible that the Almighty has chosen to smile on the Rays now that they dropped DEVIL from their name?

    Actually, I think God is just getting sick and tired of the Red Sox.

    No. It smiles on getting good pitchers and developing good young talent.

    If God was the reason for winning in baseball, the Angels would win the Series every year.
