Yes it's true... the Red Sox are once again coming coming from a huge deficit in the playoffs to try and make it to the playoffs. The Rays started off the series with a 3-1 lead but have lost the last 2 games to force a game 7 to see who will face off with the Phillies in the World Series.
Alright, now that we got this AL crap out of the way... let's see what the Crawfishboxes readers predicted, and who is still alive in their predictions.
On 9/28/08, before the playoffs even started, many of us through out our wild predictions on who we thought would go to the World Series, and who would win. Here are some of our predictions. (Original post can be found here).
Stros Bro(me) - Red Sox over Phillies Still Alive
Tony_O - Cubs VS Twins with the Twins winning. Dead
jbotter - Rays VS Brewers with the Rays winning. Rays still alive
Joe in Birmingham - Angels over Dodgers - Dead
Rastronomicals - Phillies beat the Cubs(who cares about the AL). Phillies still alive
Only_A_Lad - Angels over Phillies. Phillies still alive
TimStros - Rays over Phillies. Still Alive
DyingQuail - Rays over Cubs. Rays still alive
HighLeveragePerformer - Rays over Cubs. Rays still alive
GoCubs! - Since I hate the Cubs, I'll add this quote from "GoCubs!" as well "But, the Cubs will make the World Series, like it or not. " WRONG!! Angels over Cubs. WRONG on both counts
WSAstrosfanWS - Cubs over Angels. Dead
TexSkins - Phillies over Rays. Still Alive
littlevisigoth - Rays over Cubs. Rays still alive
So there you have it. Not to toot my own horn(okay, to toot it a little), myself and TimStros, and TexSkins are the only 3 people that are 100% still alive in the predictions... is it a coincidence that TimStros is my brother??? Unfortunately, we both can't be right and the game 7 tonight will determine whether the Rays or the Red Sox go to the World Series.. It will also determine whether me or my brother(TimStros) were right in our WS predictions.
