To win as a team requires players to come together. Unity and the will to play for each other often is the foundation that leads to championships.
Every season, the cast of characters inside the Rays clubhouse changes. There are a variety of personalities that are brought together through the bond of baseball.
Two stand out, especially when it comes to social media. Who's tops on Twitter?
"David Price, said Wil Myers without hesitation."
And Myers follows him.
"I do," said Myers. "His Tweets are great."
"I see Evan a lot on," said David DeJesus.
"I'm guessing he has a ton of followers," said Grant Balfour."
Longoria does have the most followers. Price the most tweets.
"I think both of them have branded themselves pretty cool," said DeJesus. "I wouldn't pick myself because I'm a big re-tweeter."
So who doesn't know the difference between a Tweet and a twit?
"That's a great question," said DeJesus.
"That's probably me," said Balfour. I'm probably the twit.
From social to center stage, who's the Rays' clown prince of baseball?
"I'll throw Peralta under the bus," said Balfour.
"David Price," said Myers.
"I think Pricey just to keep us relaxed," said DeJesus. "He's a guy you love being around."
"He's like a big 12-year-old," said Evan Longoria. "We all aspire to be like him."
Who's got style? Who's the Rays' Mr. GQ?
"Define style," asked Sean Rodriguez.
"Cesar Ramos," said Myers.
"David DeJesus," offered Balfour.
"I'd say Escy [Escobar]," said DeJesus. "He always comes in, you know, looking right. Looking the part."
So no clear-cut winner, but when it comes to the guy that most needs help with his wardrobe, there's one hands down winner.
"Wil Myers," said Rodriguez.
"He just doesn't care," said DeJesus.
"Pretty much three-quarters of his wardrobe is Lululemons."
"Maybe Joycey [Matt Joyce]; I don't know," said DeJesus. "I have no clue."
"I'm just going to go with Odorizzi," said Rodriguez.
What makes him strange?
"He's newer," laughed Rodriguez.
"I'd have to go with Longo," said Balfour.
"Evan and Zobrist," said Myers.
"Longo...Pricey. Either one of those two guys we probably go to for everything and anything that goes on in the clubhouse," added Rodriguez.
It's an eclectic group, but they all agree on one title they'd like to hold: World Series champs.
