Tampa Bay Rays vs Boston Red Sox (By: Mulder)
The Rays are first in this super tough division with an amazing 14-5 record and the Red Sox are already in some trouble as they got swept in the Bronx as well.
Even last year, when the Sox won it all, they were having a hard time in Florida:
-Red Sox are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Tampa Bay.
Indeed, the Red Sox are stinking it up to the joint. Offensive wise and pitching wise and now things look worse as Sale lost Velo and Kimbrel will most likely not return. But the signs were there already this spring of course.
So LHP Eduardo Rodriquez will start for the Red Sox. He pitched a lot better than his 7.98 ERA is showing us, but still not at his best at all> 9.20 K/9 , 3.68 BB/9.
The Rays rocked Rodriquez in his career:
2015: 4.91 ERA, 1.64 WHIP in 11 IP
2016: 11.25 ERA, 2.13 WHIP in 8 IP
2017: 3.18 ERA, 1.41 WHIP in 5.2 IP
2018: 7.36 ERA, 1.91 WHIP in 3.2 IP
For Tampa we will see Stanek who will start things off again: 1.93 ERA, 12.54 K/9, 1.93 BB/9.
Rays bullpen> 3.56 ERA.
Hence taking the Rays.
