Your 2008 Devil Rays As Muppets: Part One

Chris Jaffe of Hardball Times put together a list of theme songs for all 30 teams.

He absolutely hit it out of the park in selecting the theme song for the best team in baseball:

Tampa Bay Devil Rays: “Movin’ Right Along” by the Muppets. It’s an odd choice, but it’s one I stand behind. “Movin’ Right Along” is an upbeat little ditty sung by two upstarts hoping to leave their mark on a world that expects nothing from them. Yup, that’s Tampa.

It’s a match made in heaven — the Muppets are unique, awesome, unbeatable. Just like our Devil Rays.

Inspired, I’ve attempted to match Muppets and Devil Rays with nearly our entire 40-man roster. Thus the two parter — today you’ll get the pitchers, coaches and media; tomorrow the position players.

Movin’ right along….

KERMIT THE FROG is Scott Kazmir

RIZZO THE RAT is The Master Of The Modified Circle Change James Shields

SAM THE EAGLE is Matt Garza

SCOOTER is Andy Sonnanstine

LINK HOGTHROB is “The International Man of Awesome” Edwin Jackson

ROBIN THE FROG is David Price

DR TEETH is Troy Percival

FLOYD PEPPER is Trever Miller

TATOOEY RAT is J.P. Howell

THE SWEDISH CHEF is Grant Balfour

STATLER and WALDORF are Dan Wheeler and Chad Bradford

LEW ZEALAND is Jason Hammel


JIM HENSON is Manager “Coach Joe” Maddon



Hope you found that both educational and entertaining. Of course, we’ve left the very best for last, so come back tomorrow to see which Muppets will play your favorite Devil Rays position players.

In the meantime, you can feed your insatiable Muppet cravings at the Muppet Wiki, and see if you can guess some of tomorrow’s pairings. What else are you going to do on the last scheduled off day of the season for our beloved Devil Rays?

    Where’s “Eliminated in the First Round” Muppet?

  2. Chalk says:

    Was the title of the post too vague? We’re doing Devil Rays as Muppets. There’s no “Eliminated in the First Round” Devil Ray. The Devil Rays have never been eliminated in the first round, and I expect they will keep their perfect record in tact this year.

  3. Ed Blume says:

    There are no 2008 Devil Rays. There were Devil Rays in 2007, but in 2008 they are the Rays.
