The worst coverage of any network. I think I've heard them call the red sox, white sox about fifty times. Last night was the clincher.

I'm bettin against the Red Sox. Call me naive, but ever hear the saying...every rose has it's thorn? Well the rosy Red Sox have a thorn in their side, and it's called the Tampa Bay Rays.

We are MORE than capable of beating them tonight. MORE THAN. Our boys have beat that team enough times to prove themselves in this all they have to do is go out and do it ONE MORE TIME. Just ONE MORE TIME.

We weren't the Division Champions for no reason, right?

The fans stand behind their Rays....we are positive they can do this. Now is NOT the time to throw out negative thoughts.

We love you RAYS!!!!

Sammie, bring it on! Cannot argue, the Rays are a very good team but they are about to get a whooping from the Red Sox, the World Champions.

Um...where's your Papi now? lol

Sorry, but I tried to warn you. The Rays are a better team than Boston this year, and this was the ultimate proof.:) See ya again next year.

Well the Rays beat our team tonight didn't they? Maybe if everybody would stop gloating and acting "entitled" this wouldnt' have happened.

Thank you Jim!!! I have a special place in my heart for the Cubbies too.(((hug)))

Eva..I agree to a point also. The experts were saying that Boston would take the 7th game, just looking at their history. I say looking at history is fine, but banking on it, is wrong. A game is a game...if the Rays had taken that talk to heart, they should have just stayed home and forfeited, right?

Bottom line is, both of these teams deserved to be in the ALCS, they are warriors. This FELT like the World Series, didn't it? lol

Now...on to the Phillies.

Awww...that's sweet, you're a good sport Papi!! Thank you!!

But do me a favor...root harder, the damned Phillies were a bit tough on us tonight. lol I'm not scared just yet...the Rays have this thing about losing the first game at home, for some reason. I think they like to torture us fans. lol

Go Rays!!!

Red sox smacked out of game 7. Aaaah, life is very good right now...

Ok...just what I expected. The Rays were torturing us fans with that first game! Now onto Philly, and as much as I want the Rays to take the next 3 games, it would be nice if they could come home and win it here. What a treat that would be!

YES..I am a dreamer and an optimist. lol Go RAYS!!
