To Play Another Day

Facing elimination in Arlington, Texas, the Tampa Bay Rays managed to come from behind and defeat the Texas Rangers today, 6-3. Here's an odd fact about the two American League match-ups. So far, no home team has won a game during the American League Division Series. The Rays dropped two in Tampa Bay, and the Twins lost both in Minneapolis. Of course, the Minnesota Twins are currently losing to the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium, so that fact might end tonight.

The Twins are also facing elimination against the Yankees tonight. They are currently trailing 4-0 in the fourth inning. I'm a little disappointed that my surprise pick for this postseason might be bounced out this evening. If you read my playoff prediction blog, you'll see that picked the Twins to advance to the World Series and eventually fall victim to the Philadelphia Phillies. If the Twins can manage a late rally and win Game 3, there will be four games played on Sunday.

That's a big "if," Bill!

And then there were seven. Thanks for blowing my predictions, Minnesota Twins. Enjoy your offseason.

Bill, the Twins are gone as of this morning. Lucas Davenport and Weather will have to wait until next year to try again for a World Series Title. I found out recently that a local family the Narrons are very closely affiliated with the Texas Rangers Organization, and of course Josh Howard being from the area, but a young player for the Rays, Carlos Hines is from the Smithfield Area; consequently, Baseball is not dead in Eastern North Carolina. The Head Coach of the NCAA College World Series Champion South Carolina GameChickens is originally from my area and is a former NCSU player and Head Coach, so it would be something if a team that some one from the area wins the WS.
