With a 7-2 home victory over the Minnesota Twins, the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays officially clinched 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.

Impressive season, no doubt, going from worst-to-first in the AL East of all divisions. Even more impressive when you consider losing Crawford and Longoria for extended periods of time.

Replace "a week" with "three weeks" and "White Sox" with "Cubs". :-)

Alright...I realize I have like the last four posts in this forum right now. But I swear this is it.... All the yahoo leagues in the forum were already full so I started another one if there are still people out there that missed out like I did.
