Rays, Red Sox to meet in ALCS

Erick Aybar's brain-cramp at third base did indeed cost the Los Angeles Angels a chance to force a deciding Game 5. Jed Lowrie made him pay in the bottom half of the ninth to score the series-clinching run.

The Red Sox will now face the Tampa Bay Rays in the ALCS, after the Rays were able to finish off the White Sox 6-2 earlier tonight. Game 1 will take place Friday night on TBS.

In the senior circuit, the Phillies and Dodgers will meet in Philadelphia for Game 1 on Thursday.

Even though some would've preferred that Boston went down this round, I wasn't one of them. The Angels need to go back to more years of misery. They made it interesting for a moment until that blunder on third base. They almost got out of the 9th after Teixeira's catch. But they let their guard down just as quick.

During the summer, Terry Francona said that the Rays were going to a formidable opponent ("the real deal," I think were his words). And they have, so far. So I'm eagerly awaiting for the Rays to stomp over the BoSox again.

We can only hope, Kongon. I can't deal with another Sox championship.
