More than any team in baseball, the Tampa Bay Rays can appreciate what Felix Hernandez accomplished Wednesday. They've been victimized so many times by perfection that they should trademark the word perfecto.
The Rays have done two things with regularity over the past half decade — win and inspire perfect games. They're working on their fifth straight winning season. In an odd contradiction, they've also been the victims of three perfect games and one no-hitter since 2009. Add the no-hitter former Rays pitcher Matt Garza threw for them in 2010, and scoreboards full of zeros are almost common for this franchise.
