Kiss 'Em Goodbye: Tampa Bay Rays
The pitching depth of a champion is there, but the offensive firepower is not
Kiss 'Em Goodbye is a series focusing on MLB teams as their postseason dreams fade -- whether in September (or before), the division series, league championship series or World Series. It combines a broad overview from Baseball Prospectus, a front-office take from former MLB GM Jim Bowden, a best- and worst-case scenario ZiPS projection for 2012 from Dan Szymborski and Kevin Goldstein's farm system overview.
Today we look at the Tampa Bay Rays. It's time to kiss 'em goodbye.
For the full breakdown from all angles -- Bowden, BP and Szymborski -- you need to be an ESPN Insider.
