Yesterday, the Rays lost again, dropping to 0-5. They got only 4 hits in the game. Even before that (because I wrote this post last night...) they had some terrible hitting going on.
Check out the teams with the most players having at least 10 at-bats and a batting average under .100:
|1||2011||Tampa Bay Rays||4||Johnny Damon / Dan Johnson / Matthew Joyce / Manny Ramirez|
|2||2011||Boston Red Sox||2||Jarrod Saltalamacchia / Marco Scutaro|
|3||2011||Detroit Tigers||2||Alex Avila / Magglio Ordonez|
|4||2011||Houston Astros||2||Bill Hall / Humberto Quintero|
|5||2011||Washington Nationals||2||Rick Ankiel / Ian Desmond|
|6||2011||Cleveland Indians||1||Shin-Soo Choo|
|7||2011||Colorado Rockies||1||Troy Tulowitzki|
|8||2011||San Diego Padres||1||Brad Hawpe|
|9||2011||Seattle Mariners||1||Brendan Ryan|
|10||2011||Texas Rangers||1||Adrian Beltre|
|11||2011||Toronto Blue Jays||1||Juan Rivera|
That's 4 out of 17 players from the Rays. And after today, John Jason joined the group with another 0fer, Man-Ram fell to .059, Damon fell to .067, Dan Johnson fell to .053, and Matt Joyce fell to .071.
As of the moment, the Rays have the worst BA in the majors at .138.
