Joe Maddon Calls In Medicine Man To Fix The Rays

The Tampa Bay Rays have the worst record in a professional sports league that includes the New York Mets, The Chicago Cubs, and the Houston Astros. Forget outside the box, they need to get as far away from it as humanly possible to think themselves out of this mess. Joe Maddon bringing in a Seminole medicine man is a start.

Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon invited 77-year-old tribal elder Bobby Henry to Tropicana Field on Monday in an attempt to help his team, which has the worst record in the majors.

"We just turned him loose on the Trop," Maddon said.

Maddon talked about Henry's "supernatural powers," specifically when it comes to making it rain.

"If it rains in the Trop, I'll be really impressed. That will be his best moment ever," he told reporters.

While it didn't rain inside, a heavy downpour began outside Tropicana Field after Henry's visit, which was noted by the team on its Twitter account.


The Rays lost to the Mariners 3-0.

And here's the medicine man:
