If the first few games of this series are any indication, the Tampa Bay Rays may make quicker work of the last year’s ALCS champion Houston Astros than most people thought.
The Rays don’t have the flashiest team. No big name players or giant paychecks, they just play good, fundamental baseball at the highest level. The Rays are a team that doesn’t make many errors but they force them on teams that just aren’t as good.
On Monday, after taking Game 1, Jose Altuve of the Houston Astros made a costly error in the first inning which opened the door for a three-run-homerun by Manuel Margot of the Rays.
The Astros pitching was otherwise fine but silly mistakes always have a way of coming back to bite teams that aren’t worthy of greatness and if the Astros continue to play, they can’t expect the Rays to play sloppy baseball. They need to be fundamentally sound and they need their bats to wake up against a Rays team that hasn’t pitched the best in these playoffs.
After defeating the Blue Jays in round 1, they faltered a bit against the New York Yankees giving up 24 runs over the five game series. We’re picking the Rays to continue their smart baseball and roll through the Astros in Game 4.
