Rays Advance

The Rays are heading to the ALCS. Just moments ago, baseball's most charmed team finished off the White Sox in Game 4, continuing their run through uncharted territory with a 6-2 win. B.J. Upton started things with emphasis by clubbing two early solo home runs, and Tampa knocked 17-game winner Gavin Floyd from the ballgame after three innings-plus.

Tampa got a strong pitching performance from Andy Sonnanstine, who went 5-2/3 and gave up just three hits, two of them on solo homers. For the game, the Rays had 10 hits and the ChiSox had just four.

The Rays await the winner of the Angels-Red Sox series.

Congrats to the Rays! Also, I'm glad that I don't have to listen to that heckler anymore (at least now we are clear on his opinion of Jeff Kellogg).

Interesting piece on how the Rays were built. It seems that they had a...what's that word? Starts with a P, I think...oh yeah...Plan.

This branding piece speaks to the Rays home field advantage (I read elsewhere that the cowbells were given out only to fans wearing Rays gear):

Well, one aspect of it anyway.
