Open Thread - World Series Game 2

In the ALCS, the Tampa Bay Rays dropped game 1 to the Red Sox, 2-0. In the second contest, the team's offense woke up, winning 9-8 in the first volley of what was eventually a 7-game series victory. After last night's close contest that saw the Rays vanquished 3-2 by the Phillies, they are looking again for the same Game Two magic. Taking the mound for the Rays will be James Shields, who sported a 14-8 record and 3.56 ERA, as well as a 4:1 strikeout/walk ratio in the regular season. He will be opposed by the Phils' Brett Myers, who was inconsistent in the 2008 campaign, muddling through to a 10-13 record and 4.55 ERA.

Game time is 5:29 Pacific Time. Try not to fill up the thread before first pitch.
