Don't be surprised this month if baseball fans from Baltimore, Kansas City and Pittsburgh root for the Tampa Bay Rays like pilgrims saying prayers at the feet of a saint. From 1998 to 2007, no franchise seemed more lost than the Rays, who peaked with a 70-91 record during that stretch. Their veteran signings never found the old magic, their pitchers never got anybody out and their fans never cared a lick. But something wild and magical happened this season in baseball's bleakest wasteland.

NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees finally found another free agent willing to accept some of their money. They signed Wade Boggs to a three-year, $11 million contract yesterday and hoped the five-time American League batting champion would make their third-base troubles disappear.The signing is curious because Boggs, 34, is coming off the worst season of his 11-year career, all with Boston, and there is speculation that an ailing back will prevent him from regaining his form.In failing to hit .300 for the first time in his career, Boggs batted .259 last season, which dropped his career average from .345 to .338.

LIKE SO MANY others in contemporary professional sport, Major League Baseball's umpires first reached for what they deserved, then over-reached so much that they now appear arrogant and greedy.What's satisfying about their union's apparently self-defeating mass resignation is that, this time, it appears some who over-reached will get their comeuppance. This may help restore order to a game which often seems to have lost its bearings.Twenty-five years ago, many umpires made less than $20,000 a season.
