The Rays turn to a Seminole medicine man to end their slump

Crappy cologne didn’t work, so why not some tribal rituals?

The slumping Tampa Bay Rays have turned to a Seminole medicine man to change their fortunes.

Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon invited 77-year-old tribal elder Bobby Henry to Tropicana Field on Monday in an attempt to help his team, which has the worst record in the majors.

“We just turned him loose on the Trop,” Maddon said.

That visit happened this morning. As I type this, the Rays are losing 3-0 to the Mariners in the bottom of the seventh. I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that Mr. Henry’s medicine is no match for the Rays’ crappy offense and mediocre pitching.
