Lets just say I am shocked. I would have never bet that the Tampa Bay Rays would be playing against the Philadelphia Phillies. Two teams who odds in Las Vegas were at the start of the season 300 to 1 come to the ultimate show-down in baseball match up. The two teams I predicted that would be going to the series after the fall of both my ALDS picks again way wrong — thinking that it would be Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Boston Red Sox’s.
Granted the Red Sox’s held off the Rays to Game 7 of the ALCS, it is nothing like their come back in 2004 when the were down 3-0 to my Yankees, winning in the end in Game 7 and going on to win the World Series in 2004 and again 2006. For a few days, I thought the Red Sox’s would be heading back going to go for a third World Series title. Boston would have gone nuts. No matter what, all games played in the World Series are going to be in the East Coast time zone.
This year is tough pick to choose the winner. I’m just going to watch the game and not make any predictions this time around. They are both solid teams. Congrats to the Rays and Phillies on an excellent regular season.
