They are feared in the deep. In the gaps, too.

They walk toward the mound, and the third baseman takes a step back. The pitcher looks around for him. The opposing manager wishes the dugout came with a night light.

They are the hitters of the Tampa Bay Rays.

And all of the sudden, they are the big kids in school. They have discovered which end of the bat to hold.

Who would have thought it? These light-hitting batsmen who never scuffed a ball, let alone dented one, are suddenly among the most ferocious hitters in the American League. They can hit. They can score. For crying out loud, they can win.
