    I don't quite understand, "we beat the Sox in the DH after they forced it on us". Please elaborate. (completely) . . .

    Thanks,
    The doubleheader the other day Sox and rays played. Rays didn't want it you guys did and forced it.

          Who would you say is the Rays #1 rival. Personally, I'd think it'd have to be either the Marlins (for obvious reasons) or the Yankees (NYY training complex is in Tampa).

          Just wonderin'

            Now that this may come to fruition, pending on your game 7, is your challenge still on the table?
            Or have they not fully grown in yet? -

                So why wouldn't the Red Sox or Baltimore be their primary foe? Or Toronto?

                I'm not too thrilled with geographical rivalry if in a different league. Same with Yanks-Mets or Cubs-White Sox.

                Two other teams in the same state (Phillies-Pirates and Angels-A's) don't seem to have much of a rivalry.

                  My point is that, until the Rays came along, Tampa was the Yankees town. I'm inclined to believe that may cause some rivalry for the affections of the locals. However, the team in Miami has won TWO WORLD SERIES TITLES while the Rays have yet to win one. It's is reasonable to expect that these two teams compete for the affections of the state's baseball fans. That said, I did not preclude an alternative answer. I just wanted to hear the perspective on this topic from a Rays fan.

                            I'm afraid I'm a bit confused. - :noidea - Someone smacked some eggs? - :ooo: Disappearing baskets? -
                            Sorry. You've obviously confused me with someone else . . . .
