How many people have been saying to you that there is no way the Rays can hold on? I have friends who have been saying this since May, and nobody has believed me when I say that I think they can. “The starting pitching will hit a wall”…”They don’t have the experience in September pressure situations”…blah, blah, blah.
They CAN hold on, and there is a good chance that they WILL. Either way the Sox will make the playoffs…but despite having the Angels number in the post the past few years, I don’t think I want to find out in the first round. So here’s hoping they take the rubber match today, and leave that horrible dome in a virtual tie for 1st in the division.
