Who's your pick? This is pretty evenly matched, but I'll venture to say that Boston will probably win in 6.:angry: I hope Tampa can prove me wrong.

EDIT: Didn't see that someone already beat me to it. Please merge or delete.

Red Sox in 6.

I'm not rooting or pulling for either team.

Rays in 7, they are on a mission. Boston is 1-8 at the Trop.

When the Rays visited Fenway in late September and stole that series, I felt that they were the most complete team in the AL. They have yet to change my mind, and they have homefield. The Rays in 7.

(Devil) Rays in 6. Cavelli Crisp gets punched out in game 2.

I like the Rays. I voted for the seven-game option because I really think Boston is too good to get swept or even lose in five, and then I figured the Rays would win at home.

Tampa really reminds me of the 2005 White Sox. Very good rotation, but without an ace. Phenomenal bullpen. Solid lineup without any MVP-caliber season among them, but no glaring weakness either.

I think Tampa beats Boston and then has their hands full with the Dodgers, who have much better pitching that most people are talking about.

This will be a very good series. Both teams took full advantage at home in the regular season during head to head games. Since the Rays will have home field advantage, I say Tampa in 7.

I'll be pulling for the Rays, but don't think they'll get past Boston. Carmines in 6.
