Timing is everything, especially in the American League East.
It will no doubt come down to the last second with an end result with either the Rays, Red Sox or Yankees deeming 2010 a complete wash-out.
Where are the three best teams in MLB currently standing?
- New York Yankees 52-31
- Tampa Bay Rays 50-33
- Boston Red Sox 49-35
Personally, an old-school ALCS would be mucho appreciated and I am not alone in my sentiments.
It does not get much better than Red Sox vs. Yankees that is a fact.
Problem is the Tampa Bay Rays are on the move and things are heating up for this talented ball-club.
Maybe it is just me, but the Rays make me cringe. Nothing is more unsightly for a team just to be talents, entitled and lazy individuals, which is the Rays in a nutshell.
One lesson I learned earlier this season was not to count out the Boston Red Sox. Even with 10 players on a DL list that reads Ellibury, Pedroia, Buchholz, Beckett and Martinez do not underestimate the Red Sox.
The day I first counted out the Red Sox within two weeks my foot was in my mouth. Red Sox GM Theo Epstein is the master at fixing things. Epstein has proven himself, so all hail to the Red Sox organization without question.
Back to being a Yankees fan, it is easy to forget that the Bombers are a second-half team. Always exploding in July and August, but getting there is the tricky part. The ups and downs are ones that Dr. Phil and Oprah can’t even dissect.
Not to follow the Rays, but understand why Yankees fans expect to win. It is all we know. As blasphemous as it sounds, it is the truth.
Not only in New York, but also in Bean-town, a city smaller in size but surely not in heart.
Honestly, the Rays scare me because I know what capacity they possess. What makes this easier to take is that there is no letter “I” in the word TEAM and not sure the Rays can spell that well.
Who’s Got To Go?
Do I even need to answer this, if yes please read the whole post again.
