Devil, be gone

They've broken up the Devil Rays. It's almost official; starting next season, Tampa Bay's American League franchise will just be called the "Rays", and they'll have new uniforms next season, as you can see here. Since Stuart Sternberg has taken over control of the franchise, he's pursued re-naming the club, both to break from years of losing tradition and (reportedly) to get rid of any bad luck caused by having the word "devil" in the name. The new uniforms are ... well, simple. Yeah, that's one way to put it. Thoughts?

So is it too late for the "Sympathy For the Devil Rays" blog?

Didn't seem to hurt the New Jersey Devils. Devil is a contraction of "Do Evil". The Devils are evildoers, essentially. The "bad asses," if you will. Seems like a good name for a franchise, foolish superstitions nothwithstanding.

Is it going to be Tampa Bay Rays? That sounds ridiculous. Tampa Rays? Did they consider Contraction Rays?
