The Rays were seven outs away from a pennent and now they are one game away from going home.  And they have to go through Jon Lester.  Good Night and Good Luck.  Or something like that.  If Tampa finds a way to win Game 7 it will be a terrific story but they sure are facing an uphill battle.  And I certainly wouldn't put any money on them, would you?

Nope. But if I'd put money on them at the beginning of the season at those 150-1 odds, I'd be both excited and shitting bricks right now.

So this is what it has come to, eh? Learned frustration?

NOTHING is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?? HELL NO!!

On the bright side, at least you made me think of Slipping Away, a real pretty Keith Richards/Stones tune.
