Re: Devil Rays to change name
I didn't like the technicolor mumbo-jumbo when they first came out. I like the blue/forest stuff. I have the BP cap and home jersey and a green sweatshirt that's the deep forest color. The uni's are great - with the "Rays" on the home & the "Tampa Bay" on the road. Its a great color scheme.
I agree to drop the "Devil". I think "Stingrays" would be cool - that's a ocean-type moniker that would keep the name.
I do not like the idea of the Tampa Bay Tarpons, which would be a homage to the long time team in the Florida State League. The Tarpons would & could be easier to "make fun of" by dropping the "r" for a "m". Although that would be a marketing/give-a-way beyond bad-taste.
