    Agreed, we need to start playing consistent ball again...something we really havent done since the ASB. Tampa isnt going away...regardless of the SOS stuff posted on the previous page. They are a very good team. A case can be made that the O's will falter (which I'd agree with because I believe they are a fluke due to their negative run differential)...but Tampa is good and they are in this fight. We cant just keep playing .500 ball, and hope to stumble into the playoffs 2010 style. That isnt good enough and wont be enough to hold them off for the division.

    None of this matters anyway because Bud has already ruined this postseason by having the divisional series set up in 2-3 format.

    I don't see how that's "ruining" it in any way shape or form.

    It will only make it that much sweeter when the Yankees beat their ass 6 times in September.

    Well if momentum is only as good as tomorrow's starting pitcher, there's no reason to expect the Rays' hot streak to stop. The Yankees better start playing significantly better than .500 ball.

    Agreed. It needs to start happening this weekend by sweeping a bad team.

    It's insane how good and deep there pitching is. Makes me wonder why they never tried to move a piece or two for a bat to complement Longoria.

    The Rays also play us very tough. Their offense overachieves against our pitching...guys like Upton and Pena just destroy us constantly.

    Im also dumfounded to how they turn garbage into gold when it comes to relief pitching.

    Rodney hasn't had an ERA under 4.24 over the past 5 years and wasn't even the opening day closer for that team and all of a sudden .77 ERA with 39 SV.

    Pena is toast this year and its almost a lock that he will go 7-13 in the series against us, Sean Rodriguez will get some key hit with his mighty 608 OPS, and Sam Fuld is back to steal a double away from Ichiro.

    And, I hate the Trop. Feels like Im watching a game in communist USSR.

    I just hate the Rays.

    How could I forget the immortal Sean Rodriguez who always gets key hits against us. Future HOF'er Jose Lobaton is hitting well over .300 against us this year. I used to think the Angels were the kings of "scrub players who kill the Yanks", but I think Tampa has surpassed them.

    Tampa is far wrose than the Angels. At least we play the Angels less times and since they are in the West they were never a threat to us as far as winning the Division.
    The Ray's annoy me more than the Red Sox.
    And no matter how many good pitchers they trade away or lose to free agency they just seem to replace them with guys equally as good.
    Thought when they lost Soriano, Benoit and traded Garza that would slow them down but they replaced them all with no problems.

    When they lose Price, then we'll see how good they can be after drafting from the back of the 1st round like us and without the free agency compensation in the new CBA.
    Is this the end of the Brian Cashman era?

    No they didn't - when the first round was best of 5, they had the higher seeded team hosting games 1, 2 and 5.

    When they lose Price they will still have Shields, Moore and their latest guy, Cobb. Anyway Price is still on their team this season.

    They have to pick up a 9M then 12M option on Shields.

    I have a question for you Mike. You created a "I hate the Angels" thread one time. Are you going to make a "I hate the Rays thread" too?
    It's not the 27 World Championships that drive the New York Yankees. It's the 28th.
    Every year is The Year. Go Yankees.
