Tampa Bay Rays Emerge as Scariest Team in Baseball Red Sox fans are used to being afraid of the power of the Yankees, but other than the pinstripes, what is next on the list of Teams to Fear?

Wednesday’s kgb Poll Question asked fans which MLB team they fear the most, and unsurprisingly, they chose the best of the best. Sixty percent of fans are scared of playing the Rays, while 20 percent chose the Phillies as the scariest in baseball and the other 20 percent went with the Twins.

Despite dropping two of three to Minnesota earlier this season, Boston took care of business against Joe Mauer and Co. at Fenway Park on Wednesday, pulling off a 3-2 win on the back of a brilliant pitching performance by Clay Buchholz.

A three-game set at Philadelphia looms on the horizon this weekend — and even though the Phils aren’t in the same league as Boston, they’re still scary. The Phillies boast the best record in the National League — 24-14, entering Wednesday’s play — and are ranked first in a number of offensive categories, including batting average (.278) and runs scored (213).

The Rays, though, have emerged as the juggernaut of the majors, posting an MLB-best record of 28-11 heading into Wednesday’s action. The pitching staff, led by David Price, boasts a league-best 2.69 ERA, and the offense has put 207 runs on the board, fourth in the AL.
