Rays win! Rays win!
With a 2.5 game lead on July 2nd, that means they will be in first place on July 4th and you know what that means –
The Rays Are Going To The Playoffs! (according to Urban Legend. Also please note Urban Legends do not apply to teams managed by Dom Zimmer or Willie Randolph. And Zim works for the Rays. Uh oh.)
Congrats to The Rays on tonight’s game. I only caught part of it on radio (and the Rays have a nice broadcast).
Wednesday night ESPN: Rays-Bosox. Plus Chacon vs the Rangers. And the Mets probably play someone too.
With all the hype this year about the final season at Yankee Stadium, MLB has been going out of their way to honor the House That Ruth Built, yet I think they missed the boat on what could have been something really fun during interleague play.
The Red Sox have always been the Yankees great rivalry in the AL, but who has been there foe more often than not in the NL? Of course I’m referring to the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Dodgers have played more games in Yankee Stadium than any other NL team (35, all but 3 in the World Series). The rivalry between these teams in post season is legendary and MLB should have honored that.
Plus, you would have also had the added drama of Joe Torre returning to Yankee Stadium – talk about an instant ratings winner.
What was MLB thinking about when they scheduled the Padres and not the Dodgers?
For the record, the Mets have played 32 games at Yankee Stadium.
