They don’t call us Trampa Bay for nothing…

I thought 7-run leads were only tentative in football.

That is, until i was abruptly corrected by the Tampa Bay (formerly Devil) Rays. Apparently, when you have never been in a dominant position as a team, with a massive lead in a playoff series-clinching game, you don’t know to play it hard to the bitter end, and that no lead is safe and that coasting is going to end the game any quicker.

(Hey, where did our lead go?)

I guess thinking about champagne baths is especially distracting when you are usually playing golf for a good three weeks at this point every other season.

Either that, or their bats just got hot and didnt deserve to in the series…only time, and the Phillies, will tell.
