MLB 2010: American League Divisional Round -- That Sinking Feeling
The blow must be especially painful for Tampa Bay Ray fans knowing as a small market club with dreadful attendance and limited media clout, some key players like Carl Crawford may have played their last game before the hometown crowd. If one thinks of the miserable home attendance during the regular season, it's no big deal. However, to see a team that has made the post season two out of the last three years going up against the Yankees and Red Sox to do so that they could be a weaker and less interesting team next year is a shame.
The future could be much brigher for the Twins in a weaker division, a lovely new ballpark, and some of their core nucleas players signed to long contracts.
It's not over yet, but the fat lady is tuning up.
