The Rays edged the Red Sox for the AL wild card on the final day of the regular season. Joe Maddon is confident the Sox will rebound in 2012, though, which means we could have another exciting finish.
Maddon also expressed confidence in new Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine. He said he got to know Valentine while working as an analyst and said that the Sox skipper doesn't need any advice from him while taking on his job.
