Real fight begins vs Tampa Bay Rays tonight

Now that the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox have ended another dramatic series, the real battle for baseball supremacy begins tonight against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Indeed, the most disappointing thing about last night's game is that the Yankees wasted a golden opportunity to be just two games behind the Rays, giving them a chance to tie for the American League East lead if they could sweep the short series. But it's early May and the Yankees and Rays will be fighting for the title for another four months.

Rays manager Joe Maddon loves what he sees from his club, namely his young pitchers who both compete with and support each other. "Their work ethic is unparalled," he said.

The Rays are a young, feisty bunch who have a collective chip on their shoulders after years of playing in the shadows of the Yankees and Red Sox. Now they have the chance to prove that they deserve to be on top. The battle begins tonight.
