Tampa Bay Rays, the all time outlier;

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 are perfect-game connoisseurs. They've tasted them from lefties (Mark Buehrle in 2009, Dallas Braden in 2010), and now a righty has aced them. There have been only 23 perfect games in Major League Baseball history. Six of them have come since 2009, and the Rays have been the victim in three of them. They're the first team ever to have fallen to three regular-season perfect games, and they've only been around for 15 years.
