Open Thread: 4/12 vs. Baltimore

New, 15 comments

The Rays open the final series of their homestand, playing three games against the Baltimore Orioles.

I know the Orioles have been hyped somewhat this offseason but they don't scare me at all. Their bullpen is better but the starting pitching is still crap. Out of their offensive core (Tejada, Mora, Sosa, Lopez, and even Palmeiro since he still gets on base) Tejada is the only one that isn't an obvious risk for age-related decline. They'll struggle to match last season's win total.

Scott Kazmir vs. Daniel "K/BB ratio below 1" Cabrera tonight.
