Cesar Ramos Presented the Lineup Card during Tampa Bay's Winning Streak

It's only crazy if it doesn't work.


The Tampa Bay Rays had a nine-game winning streak snapped on Sunday by the Boston Red Sox. Despite the loss, the Rays' winning streak may have revealed the secret to success. During the hot streak, Cesar Ramos continually delivered the lineup card before the game. Joe Maddon had a promised to gift a monetary bonus to anyone who delivered the lineup card during ten straight victories. Ramos missed the prize by just one game.

The Rays certainly have some interesting traditions.
