Honestly? I can’t imagine a world in which the Tampa Bay Devil Rays (yeah, they’ll always be the Devil Rays to me) win the AL East, or even come in second. If these things happen, then we have a lot more important things to worry about: the four horsemen, galloping zebras, blood spouting from tree tops (I’m going for my Revelations imagery here. I have not read it but I can imagine the Apocalypse). The Apocalypse (should it be capitalized?) also involves Toby Hall hoisting a championship trophy above his head at the Trop. What? Toby Hall doesn’t play for the Devil Rays? But you’re wrong. He’ll always play for the Devil Rays in my world.
So it will again be a two-team race. The Yanks versus the Red Sox. And check this out. Remember the loss column? That’s what you need to look at. The Yanks are only two games back in the loss column! That could increase after tonight, but maybe it won’t. And what about that? That’s pretty good! No?
Enjoy the game. Comment on all the action here.
