So who had Rays-Red Sox and Dodgers-Phillies as the final four in the office pool (at the beginning of the season)? Do you think Joe Torre wouldn’t love to see his Dodgers advance and take out the Red Sox or the Rays in the World Series and show the Yankees what they missed? Personally, I’d rather see Rays-Phillies, but I would pick Boston to advance and face Philadelphia. But who knows? There’s no clear-cut favorite. Anyone here like the Rays to go the distance? Both championship series should be good. Trying to squeeze, by the way, late in an elimination game is a little risky. Mike Scioscia may agree now.
