Huge CONGRATULATIONS to the Rays!! 2010 AL East Champs!!!
With the Yankmes loss today, the Rays had the division locked up. But they beat the Royals anyway so as not to back in, but to finish the season a game ahead of the perennial (ie: big-spender) powerhouses.
And yet, disrespected by the MLB and network TV. We just won the toughest division in baseball, and possibly the toughest of any division in all of major league sports. But we get the shitty day slot for our first two games? Terribly sorry, TBS/FOX/MLB, that we’re not more interesting to you. We’ll just quietly win this series, then maybe you’ll sleep through the ALCS, too.
Bring on Texas.
