Willie Nelson would be proud of the Rays…for living his song…not the other “stuff.”
The Tampa Bay Rays have been on the road since Sept. 24, when they opened a three-game set in New York. Then it was north of the border to Toronto, where after losing the first two games of a three game series they won game number 162 of the season, to force a one-game tiebreaker with the Rangers, in Arlington, Texas. The 5-2 win and complete game gem, that David Price threw in that game, sent the Road Warriors to Cleveland for their third straight elimination game.
They beat the Indians last night 4-0 to to earn a trip to the NLDS and face the mighty Red Sox and their “Boston Strong” fans…it should be a good series, win or lose. I just hope their fans step it up, fill the “Trop,” and recognize how lucky they are to be one of ONLY 27 cities in America (and one in Canada) have a MLB Team.
