Tampa Bay Rays

The Rays change their name from Devil Rays to Rays and it's logo only this fall. They are a pretty young team, they are based in 1998 so it's only based for 9 years. Though they don't have a good record, they are improving greatly. They don't have many famous players, but they have many young players that plays very well. They are famous for their player's speed is so fast. There's a good batter in the Rays, that is their forth bat Pena. In the last season, Pena hit 46 homers and batted in 121 points, that's only second to A-Rod in the AL. With these two players as example, we can conclud that this team will have a good future and produce good players.

Baltimore Orioles

The Orioles are based in Milwaukee in 1901, then in 1902 they move to St. Louis and changed name to the Browns. They got the World Seiries cup for 3 times. They produeced good players like FrankRobinson and CalRipken, Jr. When they are still named the Browns, they have many famous players in the team , but they don't have enough money to keep the great players so the key players keep going to other teams, and now the Orioles' hitting is very bad indead. Now they are trying to use speed to beat the other teams, for their first bat Brian Roberts is very fast. The key players now is Kevin Millar. Then Tejada who was one of the key players on the team has been traded away and the teams batting will be worse than ever. Now thet have become a bad team in the MLB.
