Gotta love it... the Trop sucks but the team that plays in it has a great story going... they beat the Rangers in a one game playoff to get in, then Cobb pitches 6 2/3 scoreless against the Indians in a one game playoff to advance to play the Boston Red Sox in a 5 game series.  

 

This is going to be a great series.  The Rays have a lot of momentum going, they are playing great baseball and have terrific team chemistry going.  The pitching is set up nicely with Matt Moore in Game 1 in Boston, then it will be David Price vs John Lackey in Game 2.  And oh by the way, the last time Moore faced the Red Sox he pitched a complete game 2 hit shut out.  I love it.  Come on, I know you Yankees' fans hate the Red Sux more than the Rays, and VG, even though the Rays knocked your boys out, you know it's better than rooting for Boston, pffft.  Get behind the Cinderella!

I can't root for any al east team.

I'm hoping for a pirates Oakland World Series... Bud seligs worst nightmare.. Other than alex Rodriguez winning his hearing.

I know they're the worst team in the playoffs, but I'm rooting for Pittsburgh

I'm pulling for Atlanta.  If I weren't a Rangers fan I'd probably be a Braves fan.

Fringe, you know the Rays wouldn't be in this spot without Myers.  Yasiel Puig was this amazing story this year and everyone talked about how great a player he is and rightfully so.  But if you offered me Puig for Myers straight up I'm not sure I take that deal.  Myers is such an immense talent.  

 

As for the error, though, it was awful, he must have had just a brain cramp at that moment to not catch that ball.  However, it was not why the Rays lost the game.  Moore couldn't get anyone out after that, and before that, the Sox were hitting him hard, just hitting it right at people.  Whether or not he makes that catch, the Sox would've lit up Moore that day.

theyre both nice, young players..but I think Puig is the better player right now..Puig is a 5 tool player, Myers isnt.

 

That said, Myers might wind up having the longer, better career.

 I needed a Brooks Conrad character to make the analogy and he was closest.

Well that sucks.

How is Myers not a 5-tool player?  The only thing I can see you dinging him on is speed, he doesn't steal a lot of bases, but he has the speed where he probably could steal 20 a season.

Puig is the beter defender and has more speed..not saying Myers isnt a great prospect, he is, Id love to have him on my team. But right now, Puig is the better player..and as I said, Myers might wind up having the better career.

Still got Wil Myers for, in my opinion...a number 3 starter who has a fancy nickname.

 

Eh, I take that back. Shield's isn't a number 1...but a damn good 2. I'd still pull that trade, especially since the Rays waited for Super two status to get another year out of him.

 

 

Oh and LOL at the Braves. What a fucking joke of a team.
