I think it's fair to say that Major League Baseball (i.e. Fox Sports) is hoping for a Red Sox-Dodgers series. Rays-Brewers would have been their ultimate nightmare, and maybe the dream matchup would have been Cubbies-Sox.
As a sidenote, baseball's a funny game. Jed Lowrie knocked in Jason Bay for the winning run.
The Rays worry me, but there's no need to worry about that right now. I'm happy the Sox are back in the ALCS.
