The Sux better look over their shoulder
Oh oh! Wild card tie with the Rays playing the Yankees for the last two games. NY is going to rest their arms for the playoffs and not even worry about the Rays until it actually matters. NY will lie down for the Rays. this week so they won't have to play Boston in the playoffs.
Rays down 7 in the bottom of the eighth...put 6 on the board in the eight, down to his final strike with 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth the pinch hitter goes yard to right field. Tie game. Sox are sweating in a rain delay in Baltimore.
Sox one strike away from guaranteeing at least a playoff...and a double to deep right center. Almost thought it had enough to be a walkoff. Meantime the Rays escape the Yankees threat in the top of the twelfth. Wish I could go to bed, but this is just too captivating.
Humm,. what happened last time the Rays met the Yankees in the playoffs?
I'll be watching my Durham Bulls go slay Goliath AGAIN!
Father Time may have some sway on Jeter, but he still played better than A-Rod and Teixera.
They shouldn't have counted, he has no beard...
Seriously though, nice close. Headed home to nurse some wounds. Still at least one more game to play.
