Tampa Bay Rays 2008 ALCS Champs

Congrats to the cinderella Tampa Bay Rays! They made an epic journey from one of the worst teams in all of sports, to a huge turnaround to the World Series. They won a classic game 7 last Sunday night against the defending world champion Boston Red Sox. Thanks to huge pitching performances from David Price and Matt Garza, and clutch hitting from B.J. Upton and Evan Longoria, not to mention the supreme leadership of manager Joe Maddon.

There is a great collectible tapestry commemorating the Rays season. I found this on several websites Monday afternoon, the lowest price being www.khcsports.com
Best of luck to the Rays against th National League Champion Philadelphia Phillies. World Series game 1 starts Wednesday night at 8 PM Eastern time from Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg Florida.
