With a 7-2 home victory over the Minnesota Twins, the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays officially
the first playoff berth in the 11-year history of the franchise.
Their next challenge, naturally, will be to try and stave off the Red Sox and win the division. We'll see how that goes.
The Rays became only the second AL team-- and 11th overall-- to go from last place to a playoff berth in successive years.

Even more impressive when you consider losing Crawford and Longoria for extended periods of time.

I hope you guys aren't just saying that because you think your teams will roll over them? http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/9471.html
Call me crazy, but I really don't think Oakland is going to land a playoff berth, let alone 2nd. The Rangers are going to be a tough team to contend with - what with the additions of Gonzalez and Everett to that already unstoppable lineup.
