Tampa Bay Rays Postseason History
Tampa Bay is one of the newer cities to Major League Baseball, with the Rays starting as a franchise there in 1998. But what the Rays lack in years of experience they make up for with some of their stories of success from the postseason, including one of the most fun underdog runs in Major League Baseball postseason history.
That underdog run came in 2008, when the Rays made it all the way to the World Series, claiming their first pennant in the process by winning the American League Championship series. Tampa was able to defeat the Boston Red Sox in that ALCS, doing so in a seven game series that was packed with intensity from start to finish. Tampa was managed by Joe Maddon at the time, who later went on to deliver the Chicago Cubs a long-awaited title, proving that he was anything but a fluke with this spectacular Rays team.
David Price was a huge reason for the Rays getting to the World Series that year, although not in the way that many would think. Price, a top draft pick by the Rays, was called up by the organization during the 2008 season, although the team didn’t have intentions to start him on the mound yet. Instead, Price made his playoff debut as a relief pitcher during the series, appearing in three games in the series and picking up a win and a save in the process. The save came in Game Seven, as Price closed out the biggest victory in Rays history to that point.
Offensively, the 2008 Rays were led by Evan Longoria, who took home Rookie of the Year honors in that same season. Longoria, a power hitting third baseman, was someone who was capable both at the plate and at third base, making things easier on his pitchers while making them exponentially more difficult for opposing pitching staffs.
Tampa Bay developed a rivalry with the Boston Red Sox over the course of the 2008 American League Championship Series. Both the Rays and Red Sox had their eyes on a World Series berth that year, which is bound to create some tensions. On top of that, the teams are division rivals in the American League East, something that ratcheted up the intensity even more.
