A Lot Of The Rays Fans Who Did Show Up Are Annoying

Look, there are passionate Rays fans out there. The SBN Rays blog DRaysBay is filled with knowledgeable, passionate Rays fans who lived and died with the team this year. To make a blanket statement about any group of fans is probably not a good idea.

But this is embarrassing:

28,299 is attendance at Trop today.

Jon Heyman noted that the Rays were pretty disappointed in the attendance, as they should be. A ridiculously exciting team and playoff baseball just can't undo damage of the Naimoli Era and an unappealing domed stadium. 

As for the word "annoying" in the title -- a large portion of the 28,299 were doing the wave while the Rays were down 4-2 in the eighth. On the one hand, the combination of low attendance and the wave really has to annoy Red Sox fans. On the other, the combination annoys everyone. No one wins here.
