Rays' 2013 promotional giveaways are solid
During the 2013 season, the Rays will be giving away some promotional items that meet with our cherished approval.
Those plucky Rays -- they're seemingly as good at playing baseball as they are concocting promotional giveaways. On that front, the Rays have released their 2013 promotional schedule, and said schedule is to be commended.
While much of the docket is brimming with Ebay-able delights ("Matt Joyce Race Car" on June 30, "Moore Cowbell" on Aug. 24), two such items tower above the rest. Let us lay eyes upon them ...
Above left, you see a bobblehead devoted to the boundless charms of Astro, beloved pooch of reigning AL Cy Young winner David Price. Above right, you see Rays skipper Joe Maddon in self-serious gnome form. The former can be yours on April 21 (provided you are age 14 or younger and pure of heart), and the latter will perhaps induce Black Friday-style riots on April 24.
At Eye on Baseball, we are discerning critics when it comes to such matters, so realize the import and gravity of what we're about to say: We approve.
