With Wilson Ramos now on board, surprising Rays looking like contenders in AL East

In back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday nights at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Wilson Ramos caught 19 innings, hit two home runs, drove in five runs and shepherded a young Tampa Bay Rays pitching staff to a pair of wins over the Baltimore Orioles. And on the third day, he rested. There is still half a season left to play, but if the playoffs started today, the Rays would be the second wild card in the American League, and Ramos would be their starting catcher.
