Go all the way? Sorry to break the news to you, Rays fans, but Tampa Bay's season won't extend beyond this Red Sox series. They're a great underdog story, but unfortunately, one that falls just short, like a long fly ball that dies at the warning track.
Who's going to beat Boston? Edwin Jackson? Matt Garza?
Forget about Daisuke Matsuzaka; the Sox boast Josh Beckett, one of the best postseason pitchers any of us will ever see. I can actually buy the argument that the young Rays are impervious to postseason pressure. But if you want to believe in youth, believe in Jon Lester, who won the final game of last year's World Series.
