When Narratives Go Wrong: Cinderella Edition
John Romano's article this morning in the St. Pete Times was titled Rays have lost fighting spirit.
For much of the year, the Rays looked like improbable contenders. And now, at the most critical moment, they are playing that way.
They insist it is not the pressure of being in first place that is making them lose.

Does beating Papelbon at Fenway after an electrifying, dramatic, go-ahead eighth inning home run by Jason Bay count as pressure?
Let me know, John Romano.
