Watch Rays mascot Raymond slam a beach ball in a (fake) pirate mascot's face

The Pirates are making a rare Interleague visit to Tampa Bay this week, and they brought a pirate mascot with them to represent the squad. Actually, that's completely inaccurate: This pirate has no connection to the Pittsburgh franchise (unlike the Pirate Parrot, who was not in attendance). But Rays mascot Raymond still used him in an attempt to show what his team would do to the Bucs:

Unfortunately for Raymond, the allegorical display proved false, as the Pirates beat the Rays 8-1 on Monday.
