ALCS 2008: The Better Team Prevails!

Allen LieuCorrespondent IOctober 12, 2016

Congratulations to the Rays on your first appearance to the World Series!

The better team finally won! It is great to finally see some other team other than New York and Boston in the playoffs. The Rays, with their unbelievable season, have finally capped off their journey and are now in position to become the World Series champions.

The amount of Boston articles are going to skyrocket on various websites about the what could've happened but guess what? The Rays proved EVERYONE wrong. Who would've thought that by the time we reached the playoffs in October, the Rays would be champions of the American League!

The Rays are a great team, with great team chemistry. I'm excited to see them face the Phillies in the World Series.

If the Rays pitching can hold up, they will be a force to be reckoned with. The Phillies have a strong rotation as well, but hitters such as Utley, Howard, and Burrell have ben struggling to find their groove throughout the whole playoff series!

Rays in five.
