So this is it. The big cheese, the whole enchilda, cliche after cliche. I’m not exactly sure why the boys wanted to wait until Game 7 to clinch the ALCS. My guess is they just want to do it in dramatic fashion infront of 40,000 cowbell clanging faithful. We can do this. We’ve done it all season long. We are the Tampa Bay Rays, winners of 97 games, holders of the best record in baseball at home, winners of the AL East, and one win away from the World Series.
If anyone said at the begining of the year there would be a Game 7 in the ALCS tonight at Tropicana Field, they would have been called crazy. But here we are. Crazy like a fox, and ready to raise the roof on the Trop.
Let’s go Rays!
