Definately what the media want. But the Rays are good and they can just as easily dispatch of the Sox and go through.
No doubt about it, the Rays are solid but I think experience is going to play a big part in this series. I also fancy Boston's starting pitching over the Rays aside from Wakefield. Tampa Bay's bullpen is lights out but their hitting in my mind is still a question mark. This should be a good series, I would say Boston in six. As for the media, they hope for Manny's return to Beantown. I would love to see that!!!
