You don't say
During a discussion about becoming a better hitter before Friday's game against Minnesota, Rays manager Hal McRae engaged in a bit of philosophy. "If you think there's a problem, you try to rectify it. That's not only here, that's in real life. We adjust. If it's raining you get an umbrella. If the sun's shining in your eyes when you're driving, you put your visor down."
