Please Rays, win the AL East

Posted on: June 2, 2008 6:35 pm

This is a big series between the Bo-sox and the Rays, with somewhat big implications on this years AL East race.  The Rays have the top record in the AL which not a single person in the world thought would happen (besides some Sports Illustraded guy, and he said it would be in 2010).  They have young players, and a few veteran leaders like Percival, and Cliff Floyd.  I just dont think that they will stay in the lead for very long, like when the Yankees finally heat up.  I would love to see the underdogs win it,  etc. Marlins, White Sox.  That would show everyone that payroll doesnt matter.   The Yankees are old and overpaid.  

Please win the AL East Rays, it would be a great step in baseball history.

Ditto that. I'd love to see anyone other than the Red Sox or Yankees come out of the AL East. I've just gotten tired of seeing those two teams beat up on what has been the least competitive division in baseball year after year, even though Tampa Bay has beaten New York in their season series each of the past two seasons, once when they were dead last in the division.
