6-2-07 Game Thread: Royals @ Rays

Ed Jackson on the mound looking to get his 'win' on, hopefully he shows some carry over from his last start, which was by far the best he's had as a Ray. Wouldn't it be nice, with the two new additions, to actually have a decent rotation? Also I'm intrigued about Fossum in the bullpen, he looked very good last night and even lowered his ERA from 7.95 to 7.74, but long term I wonder how succesful he can truly be? At the moment the optimist in me thinks that the rotation as a whole can lower their ERA below 4 (with two nicely placed 0.00's in the fold of course) it sits at 4.3 when you count the three starters who have actually you know, started for the Rays this year.
