I wrote up a brief preview over at SB Nation Tampa Bay, so check that out if you want to read a full preview. Otherwise, here's a brief summary: the Mariners have a horrible offense, but some excellent starting pitchers.
It's too bad the Rays have to face two of their best starters in this series, but such is life. The Rays should still be able to out-hit the Mariners, but considering their struggles at the Trop, it could make for quite to low-scoring series.
