The First Baseman brought star power, and for that matter, power, to the expansion team. McGriff had 19 Home Runs in 1998, and he would increase that to 32 with 104 Runs Batted In in 1999. He would also bat .310 with a Slugging Percentage of .552. In his third year with the Rays, McGriff's power game remained strong with 27 dingers and 106 RBIs and would be his fifth (and final) All-Star Game appearance. The Rays would trade him to the Chicago Cubs before the trading deadline, but he still had another 19 Home Runs before the deal.As a Ray, the “Crime Dog” blasted 99 Home Runs with a Slash Line of .291/.380/.484.
