reid.The Rays' thrilling 1-0, 11-inning victory Monday night at the Trop was a much bigger deal here than it was in New York, mostly because big-talking New York Jets were shut up by the Ravens on Monday Night Football, causing fans of the J-E-T-S to go into full panic mode one week into the NFL season. And while this series between the Rays and Yankees is for first place in the AL East, both teams are in good shape to at least be the American League wild card. So it's not necessarily a do-or-die series full of must-win games. (Then again, you might not know that if you had seen Yankees manager Joe Girardi's prickly mood following the game.)

Nevertheless, here are some of the reports out of New York following Monday's game.
