Staff predictions for Rays-Red Sox ALCS

Staff predictions

Marc Topkin

rays in 6

Homefield is a huge advantage for the Rays. So after they steal one game in Boston, they can wrap it up at the Trop.

John Romano

Red Sox in 7

I have underestimated the Rays every step of the way. Why mess with a good thing now?

Gary Shelton

Rays in 6

There are a lot of things about the Red Sox to worry a young team. The thing is the Rays don't seem to get worried. Homefield should tip things their way.

Joe Smith

Rays in 7

In a series likely filled with late-inning dramatics, the Rays hold the trump card of homefield advantage. And that will be just enough for their dream season to continue.

Brant James

Red Sox in 7

The defending world champions' only tangible advantage is playoff experience. That won't rattle the Rays, but it will be enough to steal the finale.

Dave Scheiber

Rays in 7

The Rays, buoyed by their recent success over the Red Sox, keep the magic alive with a combination of strong pitching, clutch hitting throughout the lineup and homefield advantage.
