Because Nothing Says Slump Buster Like Boston

I mean really, is there a way we lose this game? Eight game losing streak not withstanding Kazmir on the mound against the Red Sox is exactly what I want to see when we're in need of a victory, plus we get our first look at the vaunted 'DoorMat'...

Kaz career versus Boston? 65 innings pitched, 48 hits, 69 strikeouts, and a smooth 2.60 ERA. Pena should have fun with the short wall in right, right-center, and the Rays should win this game.

Now let's hope all this positive mojo I'm putting forth doesn't come back to bite us in the behind like the negative rant yesterday.
