The matchup you didn’t know you needed but so want.

The Rays, fresh off of a Wild Card win against the Athletics are still in for a massive fight when it comes to the Astros. The fearsome threesome of Tyler Glasnow, former Astro (and potential inside man to Hinch’s brain?) Charlie Morton, and Blake Snell could be enough to hold off the 107-win team’s bats. The issue is whether or not Justin Verlander (2.06 ERA) or Gerrit Cole (2.50 ERA) let any form of offensive leak onto the field.

While the Astros seem unstoppable, so does Yandy Diaz, as per his two dingers during the Wild Card game and also his biceps. If the Rays offense can shake up Houston, Tampa Bay’s casually lights out bullpen might just have enough to shutdown the likes of Jose Altuve. Regardless of his the series ends, expect some tense games as Tampa tries to prove the deserve a spot at the table and Houston tries to build an even biggest dynasty claim.
