Rays’ James Loney has a Quiet Determination
There have been other Rays who have been quiet, who have needed space and kept mostly to themselves, who took what kindly would be called a low-key approach on the field.
But Loney plays with such a sense of calm that manager Joe Maddon went deep into his vast vocabulary to compare him with the similarly-stoic pitcher Jeremy Hellickson in terms of “brachycardia” — an unusually slow heart beat.
