Majority of Fans Believe Tampa Bay Rays Will Finish Third or Worse Despite the Red Sox falling to the Rays twice on Saturday, fans think Tampa Bay is destined for third place or worse.

In the NESN.com Question of the Day powered by kgb, 54 percent of respondents feel the Rays just aren't good enough to contend for a postseason spot.

It's possible some of these voters may be changing their tune after watching Saturday's games. Pat Burrell jacked a two-run home run to pace the Rays in the first game, which was a continuation of Friday's raine-delayed contest.

Burrell also chipped in a bases-clearing double in the second game to help propel Tampa to a 6-5 victory.

Tampa Bay has shown so far they're quite a dangerous team, as 22 percent of voters agree with, believing they will finish first. The remaining voters, which amounted to 22 percent, see a second-place finish — behind, presumably, the Boston Red Sox.

One thing's for sure: despite the baseball season just beginning, it will be a three-way dogfight to win the division crown.
