THE GOOD: The Rays won 2 of 3 at The Trop North. After game 2 if you had been offered 2 wins in the next 3 at Fenway, you would have gladly signed and said let’s go home up 3 games to 2 with James Shields waiting to start game 6. How is this a bad thing?
THE BAD: The ******* TBS announcers. We all know they won’t have another baseball game for 11 months once this series is over, but do they have to openly root for the Red Sox? ****! For about 4 hours last night we thought we were watching a White Sox game and somehow Hawk Harrelson and Darrin Jackson had snuck into the booth…The Red Sox are clearly invincible. They won 1 of 3 home games and their $110 million pitcher got torched for 5 runs in 4 innings in the biggest start of his career. That is the stuff champions are made of.
THE TELLING: The Rays suck. They were unable to sweep 3 games at Fenway in the playoffs. Joe Maddon and the boys might as well just put up the white flag and go back to the cellar, because apparently the series is over with the Red Sox leading the ALCS 2 games to 3…The Rays have no more games at the Trop North, and instead will have to settle for 2 games at The Trop South with their top two pitchers…According to CoolStandings.com the Rays now have a 78.0% chance of winning the ALCS. Apparently the CoolStandings.com algorithm does not take into consideration the magical qualities of the Boston Red Sox. Normally it takes more than 2 victories to win an LCS, unless of course the team is the Boston Red Sox.
DEVIL DOGS WEBTOPIA…
- No links today. Let’s take a morning off and gather our senses and get ready to rock the Trop. Instead we will leave you with a diddy because we don’t give a hoot about what they think
- And if you need a chuckle, try this bonus video…We like to imagine the game is at Fenway and the players are wearing Red Sox unis.
