From worst to first...

The Tampa Bay Rays have officially gone from the worst team in the major leagues (for the past ten years) to the best team in the American League.  And as of last night (after beating the Boston Red Sox!!!) they are headed to the World Series.  The World Series starts here in Tampa/St. Pete this Wednesday, and the celebrating is in full swing.  The town is going crazy. The Rays are only in their 11th year of existence (the newest in the major leagues), and they are already heading to the World Series.  And they beat the defending world champions to get there!  It's been a blast. Regardless of whether they win or lose in the World Series, the fact that they made it this far has been impressive.  If they do win the World Series it will be the first time in history that a team advanced from worst place to first place (winning the World Series) in one year.  

I guess we'll know in about a week.
