"I would say simply by the math Tampa Bay is in excellent position," Rosenthal told Ron and Ian Tuesday.  "They're playing a Yankees team right now that is depleted and they've got Toronto they should be in good shape.   They seem to be rounding in to form at the right time."

Rosenthal also had high praise for Ben Zobrist, whose defensive play was key to Tampa Bay's four-gamw sweep over the Baltimore Orioles, as well as Joe Maddon, saying "he's an individual.  He's an original, and another manager could not set out to simply copy his style and say 'I'm going to be Joe Maddon.'  There's only one Joe Maddon."
