I called a game 7 victory in the ALCS for the Rays, now I'm calling a game 5 to win it all in the World Series for the Rays.

I hope they win it 4 or 5 to celebrate in front of all the Philly fans :lol:

Meh no one picked us to beat the Dodgers either and we know how that turned out.

Phillies all the way. If they win I'm looking forward to celebrating on broad street.

#17 Posted by Master_Live (15388 posts) -
Does three left handed relievers will come handy against the Phillies.

What's with the 9=8 thing?

Pretty sure 1 or 2 guys on ESPN did.

pretty sure he's not talking about ESPN

"No one picked us" is what he said, i don't care if a guy on Telemundo picked them. Even on Around the Horn they said they were hot and dangerous.

Ray's sweep.
#23 Posted by GoreObsessed (8883 posts) -
Go Rays! :D
#24 Posted by Blackfriend8 (1982 posts) -

does it really matter going to be the most boring world series ever. Red Sox vs Dogers would have been so much more fun to watch.

but the rays will prob win it

#25 Posted by X360PS3AMD05 (36298 posts) -
As long as it's not as boring as last years.....
#26 Posted by ASK_Story (11455 posts) -

My favorite team is the Angels...than the Dodgers (because my Dad loves the Dodgers).

But since they're both out, I guess I pick the Rays.

#27 Posted by surferdude17 (599 posts) -
Phillies don't have a chance. Rays in 5.
#28 Posted by ZeldaNut113 (1037 posts) -
Phillies vs. Brewers.........eh, MAYBE the Phillies will win...but they'll definitely lose whenever CC Sabathia pitches
Result: Phils win series 3-1 (Game 2 saw CC Sabathia pulled by the 4th)

Phillies vs. Dodgers........Are you kidding? Dodgers easily handled the Cubs (the best team in the NL) while Philly JUST BARELY managed to scape one out against Milwaukee?? Although they do match up well...Dodgers in 6...7 if the Phils are lucky
Result: Phils win series 4-1

By all means, everybody, pick against the Phillies. They seem to thrive when no one gives them a chance. Not saying they'll definitely win, but don't write them off simply because the Rays are from the AL and the AL is stronger than God (supposedly). The Rays are a good team though, and should stay good for several years. Having said that, Go Phils!! (but best of luck to Tampa this series and next year as well)

I'm not a big baseball fan and I like Cinderella stories, so I hope the Rays take it lol. I really wouldn't mind if the Phillies won though.

Rays are gonna win. I know i won't be watching any single game of the World Series this year.
#31 Posted by Ngamer05 (11577 posts) -
Rays have to win, I HATE the Phillies. :evil:
#32 Posted by monkeytoes61 (8391 posts) -
Rays win the series 4-2.
#33 Posted by Oleg_Huzwog (21885 posts) -

Phillies in 6.

#34 Posted by FragStains (20668 posts) -

I don't know who will win. I do know that this might be one of the least watched World Series'.

Count me out for the Rays home games...If I hear another cowbell, or see another 'Needs more cowbell' sign in the crowd, I'll punch the TV.

#35 Posted by mrgab (23310 posts) -
Go on a limb - Rays in 6. Hamels of the phils wins the 2 games. But see the Rays pitching as better than the phils pitching.

Exactly. It was the Mets, then the Brewers, then the Dodgers for no one picking the Philies. Sports Illustrated was all Manny during the Dodgers series, and it'll probably be all Longoria and Upton during this one. Doesn't make a difference to me, Phils all the way.

I think we are allowed some leeway for hyperbole here...
#38 Posted by helium_flash (9245 posts) -
I think the Rays will win because they are the better team. However, I want the Phillies to win because they've suffered a lot longer than the Rays.
#39 Posted by rapsrule4 (968 posts) -
phillies ftw
#40 Posted by DeathStar17 (4858 posts) -
Tampa Bay Rays FTW...
#41 Posted by X360PS3AMD05 (36298 posts) -
So nobody answered, what's with the 9=8?? Yes i agree it'll be sad to have Games 1 and 2 of the series in that horrible "Ballpark" and the fans will be quiet, but i'll still watch :D

Will the layoffs affect the Phillies?

Well I think you are referring to Joe Maddon and he's 9=8 thing. If I'm not mistaken that's his motivational tool: 9 guys playing hard as a team get to be one of the 8 playoffs teams.

Phillies will win.

They've fought and built for 4 years to get here. The city is hungry for their first World Championship by ANY Pro-Sports team since 1983.

It's time.

Rays have been on a hot streak, but so were the Rockies last year... and they got a dose of reality in the World Series.

Phillies will win in 5 or 6 games.

GO PHILLIES! BRING HOME THE TITLE!

#46 Posted by fbigent34 (2389 posts) -

#47 Posted by -Halftime- (10004 posts) -
