    The Race To The World Series

    It's mid-October and all eyes are on the MLB postseason. As the remaining teams dwindle, the intensity only picks up. Every game won is one more step towards eternal glory, while every game lost is another step towards a blown opportunity. For the four remaining teams--the Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Philadelphia Phillies--victory is the only option. Each team, incidentally, has the "goods" to get the job done. For the Philadelphia Phillies, the strength lies in the skills of their batting lineup. The deadly combination of Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, and Jimmy Rollins is powerful enough to shake even the most steadfast pitching. The Los Angeles Dodgers are backed by the hard-hitting and hall-of-famer-to-be Manny Ramirez. With him in the lineup, a single swing of the bat is enough to drastically change the momentum. But the youth of the Tampa Bay Rays is not to be overlooked. Showing that their youth does not mean lacking nerves and patience, the Rays have powered their way through the slugging White Sox and are ready to take the ALCS. The defending World Series Champion Boston Red Sox, however, will not let that happen without a fight. The Red Sox basically have an MVP at every position so they are never out of any game. The race to the World Series is going to be exhilarating to say the least. You can catch the big games live this year, though, if you take advantage of our World Series tickets.
