Maybe the Reds should move to Tampa Bay

Cincinnati is 6-1 against the Rays in their park

Reds fans may have gone to sleep on the team as they lost nine consecutive games, but the squad woke up Monday with a 7-3 over the Rays to spark an idea: maybe Cincinnati should petition MLB to stay in Tampa Bay, where the Reds are 6-1 all time (including visits in 2003 and ’11). 

Scott Schebler and Scooter Gennett homered, Joey Votto had three hits and the Reds dropped the Rays’ record against Cincinnati to 3-10, Tampa Bay’s worst against any club in the league.
