    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'
    Interesting question I don't think it's the Marlins personally more the red Sox something is always happening with those series.

      RaysFan_98, your obviously an astute baseball fan. I agree with you. The Sox/Rays rivalry has developed incredibly over the last decade. The better teams make better rivalry's. In the last few years the Rays & the Red Sox have usually competed at a higher level than most other teams.
      In fact, other than Baltimore, Rays & the Red Sox, I don't see the
      remaining teams in the A.L. East staying in contention much past the All-Star break. It's ashame too... - :dismay:

        You're just testy 'cause the Bruins will be watching the Eastern Conference Finals on TV.* :clown:

        as of 9am today...

        BTW, I'd opine that the reason the Rays number one rival is the Sox, opposed to another division rival, is primarily due to two ALCS meetings.

              First off, no reasonable person is gonna' believe that load of crap but, since your audience is mostly Bostonian, you should be okay. :clown: Besides, if your talking about the Jays, they should be a lighter shade of blue.

              In other news... I don't know how many times the NY RANGERS have won a playoff game on my birthday (May 19th) but it hasn't been many.* Up 2-0 and returning to NYC! WOO-HOO! And, in case you've forgotten, the Yankees hold SOLE POSSESSION of FIRST PLACE on my birthday too. roof:

              *However, I do know they accomplished the feat in 1994...

                          You haven't got the hat yet 'cause I had it shipped to my house... :cap: You know, so I'd be sure you'd get it.
                          It's here waiting for you to pick it up. :clown: [You don't mind if I wear it a bit until you come get it, do you? :blush:]

                                We'll see.

                                What I live for during after every Sox/Rays game is to hear Staats say "We hope you enjoyed the broadcast/telecast if not the outcome"....
