After taking two from three from the Bronx Bombers, we have the tough Rays -- who took two of three from the Red Sox, and by the way are reigning league champions this weekend in Baltimore.
If anything, this weekend's series may show where the Orioles really, really stand in terms of their talent level and how they stack up against the American League Easy. Unlike the Yankees, who may have some age and questions about their lineup, the Rays do not have that problem as they are young, athletic, and most important -- good.
- Friday: Hendrickson (0-0, 0.00) vs. Sonnanstine (0-0, 0.00)
- Saturday: Guthrie (1-0, 4.50) vs. Niemann (0-0, 0.00)
- Sunday: Eaton (0-0, 0.00) vs. Shields (0-1, 8.44)
Prediction: Rays will take two out three unless Baltimore jumps on the young arms in their rotation early.
I'll be at the game tonight despite the weather concerns, and I'll have Twitter up and running with my thoughts along with the action on the field. It's beautiful out right now; however, most are expecting storms throughout the night and into Saturday morning.
