Well, this is it. Either Daisuke Matsuzaka gets the Red Sox rolling on one of their patented ALCS comebacks or Scott Kazmir and the Rays bulldoze their way into the World Series, where they'll be scaring the heck out of the Phillies fans hoping for the drought to end. Personally, I don't think the Red Sox are going down without a fight, but the Rays have proven me wrong before. I'll pick Tampa Bay getting to Boston's 'pen late and winning a 5-3 contest.
Game time is nearing, so let's cut to it: AP preview is here, Jeff Passan's story on Evan Longoria and B.J. Upton is here, Gordon Edes' story about the probability of a Red Sox comeback is here and the Inside Edge scouting report is here. Your in-game comments are below.
