    Magic # is 14 to make playoffs. Rays need to stay focused today with the Yankees on the horizon in 7 of their next 11 games.

    Great game tonight so far...0-0 going to the bottom of the 8th...Rays only 1 hit though. I would take a walkoff win tonight, but would rather score now and trot Soriano out again to make up for yesterday...

    Yankees are a disgrace, while rays are a well run franchise.

    why are the yanks a disgrace(aren't you a yankee fan?)? they won it all 27 times and are the defending champion.

    don't get me wrong I'm a yanks hater and hope the Tampa wins the division, but I respect that they are the best franchise in baseball history.

    Tonight's game is the complete opposite of last night. 6-0 NY lead becomes 7-6 Rays lead, now NY ties it right back up and are still batting. I correctly predicted a walkoff win last night, so let's make it 2 in a row

    Another nailbiter tonight. I don't trust Shields for much longer in this game. I wonder if Soriano would even be available tonight?

    Jeter the cheater? That ball hit the knob of the bat, not his elbow. He'd have a broken elbow if it did, with how far it traveled out into the field of play. I thought he had more class than that!!

    Maddon didnt' seem to mind Jeter's play:

    Jeter, smiling slyly during his postgame exchange with the media, made no apologies for capitalizing on the opportunity.

    "Well, (Barksdale) told me to go to first," he said. "I'm not going to tell him I'm not going to first. I mean, my job is to try to get on base."

    Asked if he was responding to the vibration from the ball hitting the end of his bat or acting when he shook his arm, Jeter said, "Vibration. And acting. Both."

    Maddon said he didn't have a problem with Jeter's gamesmanship and would have applauded a Rays player doing the same thing.

    Reversal Of Fortunes

    I've got to say that the swift reversal of fortunes last night was stunning to Rays fans and Yankees haters (of which I'm both). At the same time the Yankees had just been retired in the eighth inning trailing Baltimore 3-1, the Rays had just loaded the bases with two out in their 3-3 tie against the Angels with that game also in the bottom of the eighth. Practically simultaneously, both my rooting interests went south, with the Rays failing to score and then giving up the go-ahead and deciding run in the top of the ninth, and A-Rod (or as I like to call him, A-(something else) hitting a game winning homer for New York. Hopefully, the resulting Yankees' boost of confiedence and the Rays loss of first place will be only temporary. At this point, I'm not even sure who leads the season series, the Rays or the Yankees and who would be declared the division champion by tie-breaker, in case the season were to end in a tie. How many days in August were these two teams tied or within a half game or a game of eah other? At least 20 days, I believe. It's one of the nuttier races in recent memory. Of course either team is capable of pulling away, but that would be a bit anti-climactic. I look for the division race to go right down to the wire.

    I think it will be decided starting Monday. If either team goes 3-1 in the 4 game series, they will win the division.

    Cannot let down now. The schedule looks good on paper, but they have to bring the same passion and emotion they bring to Fenway and the new Yankee Stadium. So far, so good, up 5-3 going to the 8th tonight...
