What a year for Tampa sports.  The Lightning won the Stanley Cup, the Rays are doing great, and the Bucs landed Brady.

already posted this in another post I should not have put up but hjeres my honest opinion.
I think the offense is there for the Rays, but the wasy the stinkin Dodger blue ran the bases was scary. That craps gotta stop. What a friggin disasster!

I hope everyone that was interested in the Rays watched the game tonight.  No matter if you did or not, I’m sure the rest of the week you will be hearing about it, seeing it, and everyone talking about it…. The last play in the fourth game of this series will go down in the history books for many many years!  This could go down in a movie, the many errors of that last play, missing the catch, a wild throw to home plate, 3rd base runner tripping over his helmet on the way to home plate, then turning around briefly back to 3rd, then running home again , sliding across the plate to lay there as the winning run for minutes while it sinks in that the Rays made a comeback to end game 4 at 2-2. AWESOME, GO RAYS!!

Yeah that was a hell of a finish.

End of game 4 looked like a little league game... two errors and the runner falling down.  :P

Looks like the Rays may be cooked... id like to see a game seven but have a feeling it wont happen.

Well game 5 not so great. Our pitcher choked in the first inning and they never really recovered.

They'll have to win the next 2 now.. possible but not easy.

Yes, take out the Pitcher that's been doing spectacular because he allowed 1 hit. Not a run, a hit.

Way to throw the game guys.. made about as much sense as stealing home in the last game.

Oh well, at least they made it to the world series.

Very sad ending, they just didn’t want it as bad as LAD did.

 I actually have pretty much nothing but praise. The Rays made it all the way to the World Series by way of beating the enemy of all man kind Skankees. Then they beat out a team that cheats, which is a good thing. THen they gave the Dodgers a good solid run , 6 games.
 Im proud of the team, hopefully spring training will be held on time, altho I kind of doubt it will.
 another way to look at it they gave us something to watch during this pandemic which I for one am thankful, cuz Im tired of Covid.

when did the Rays go up against the Patriots?

I'm with you Weeze...The Rays had an incredible season no matter how you look at it.  They weren't even really supposed to be competitive this year based on payroll, but yet they had the best win/loss record overall.  Sure most people were scratching their head with the pitching change (myself included :P), BUT Cash's strict 'analytics' approach is what got them to the WS in the first place so it was only natural to see it through.  Yes it blew up in their face, but that approach is what got them there so it made sense. 

Analytics have slowly been taking over sports in general.  From the shifts and pitching changes in baseball, more 2 point conversions in the NFL, and even dudes like Bryson Dechambeau who plays golf in a totally different way than everyone else based on analytics.    For better or for worse, analytics are here to stay.

It just seemed like one of those series where they were going to have to get pretty lucky to win.

They kept winning via home runs or wacky stuff like in game 4

They were always coming from behind so it was just a matter of time.

Maybe now once they are back up and stadium is open people will actually go to games.. Ive been to rays games with 500 people there.  :P

LA dodger justin turner, had covid. and he knew it. and he went out and celebrated with the team, mask free, when they won.

so there is a higher power. the LA health department wants to quarantine all of them for 2 weeks.
