    Tonight at 8 o' clock is the start of game 7 of the ALCS. Will the Red Sox pull of an amazing victory winning the division? Or, will the Rays make it to the World Series for the first time in franchise history?

    You haven't told us who YOU are pulling for!??
    This will be a phenomenal game that ends a phenomenal series with much drama and excitement. No matter who ends up representing the American League in the World Series, they will have EARNED that right.
    May the best team win:-)!!

    Aw. the Red Sox had their miracle in 2004. They could have pulled this off this year, but they just didn't make it all the way to the end with those TB fans.
    I believe the series ended the way it was meant to.
    Now I am rooting for the Phillies:-)

    As a die-hard sox fan, I was obviously displeased by the outcome of last night's game. But I can take some solace from the fact that the Yankees didn't even make the playoffs, and that they haven't won a world series since the last millennium! What's more, I think the Sox have a good team returning next year, albeit with a few holes to fill, but I have faith in Theo Epstein and company to do what they need to do. John Henry and company recognize the way to make money in baseball is to have a winning team, and the Sox will be in the mix again, I predict.

    The Yankees last World Series win was in 2000 beating the Mets 4 to 1.

    I was surprised Tampa Bay actually won.  I just hope this World Series can bring some excitment that hasn't been seen the last few World Series match-ups.

    You are correct about 2000 being the Yankees' last championship. That was the last year of the century, since there was no year zero.

    My husband and I just came home from a Move (W -- kinda boring, but some funny portrayals) and tried in vain to find on ESPN who had won tonight. When we left TB was ahead. They were interviewing Shields as player of the game, so I am assuming TB won. Does this put TB at 2-0?
    As you can tell, I'm not following the WS now that my beloved Sox are out. I'm glad that some new energy is in, tho. Remember when the Arizona Diamondbacks hit the scene, seemingly out of nowhere?

    I remember when the Dimaondbacks came out of nowhere.  It was a shocker they won the whole thing.  The World Series is tied 1-1.  Philadelphia won the 1st game and Tampa won this one.  I hope this series is competitive.
