The Tampa Bay Rays left their way to really rub off in their ALDS win over the New York anchor on Friday. Celebrated after defeating their division rivals on the field 2–1 in Game 5 (box score), they added an extra parting shot with “New York, New York”.

The Yankees played the famous Frank Sinatra song after a win at Yankees Stadium. James Wagner of the New York Times posted a video on the music of the Tampa Bay team at Music in Petco Park, San Diego.

It did not stop there. As the ceremony continued, another famous song about New York came over the speakers: “Empire State of Mind” by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. While not used in an official capacity for the Yankees, it is the most notable modern song about the city, so its purpose is still fake works.

As one might expect, there was less happiness among the losing side. Manager Aaron Boone Called The result is “terrible” and added “the ending is cruel.” American league home run champion Luke Voight said, “I hate this feeling. It sucks.” A pitcher of relief Aroldis Chapman, who left Mike Brosseau in the bottom of the eighth to go out of the house, called it “disappointing”. All this was said about the city they play in the blast on the ground, although Aaron Judge said that Nobody heard it on yankees.

The Rays eventually stepped off the mocking playlist and switched to celebrating what was truly accomplished that evening: a spot in the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros. They are just four wins away from a World Series berth, and the time between now and the start of the next series will require intense attention and preparation. But there is some time to dance before they are engrossed in all of that.
