Miami Marlins and Tampa Bay Rays: Three Stories To Watch
As Miami Marlins fans well know, it was for earth-shaking matchups such as these that Interleague Play was designed for.
Welcome to another Citrus Series between the Miami Marlins and Tampa Bay Rays.
Alright, maybe it’s not quite Mets-Yankees. But there is substance here. The Rays get to have winning seasons, while the Marlins get to win World Championships.

Without further ado, your three stories to watch. Let’s dive in.
