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!!!
Baseball isn't an easy sport to play, and watching a player of Evan Longorias calibur is a treat to view. The guy is a stand out talent and if the Rays are destined to go to the world series, it will because of this guys sheer brilliance at playing the game. By far the rookie of the season and a true hero to the organisation. The whole team has produced and they haven't taken a rest yet and they are on there way to the WS imo. And people still are banking on the Sox, to go through. I hope the Rays make it, not because of my bet, but as a fan too.
