Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: A possible playoff preview?

A Wild Card preview, Blake Snell for Cy Young, and Mike Trout a lifetime Angel?

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Oakland Athletics Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the Tampa Bay Rays will welcome the Oakland Athletics into town for a three game set.

The Athletics currently hold a more than comfortable lead with eight games separating them from the Rays and Seattle Mariners for the second Wild Card spot with less than 20 games to be played in the regular season. However, the Rays still have some hope left, but it would take a massive collapse from either the Yankees or Athletics in order to get it done.

Diego Castillo opens tonight for Tampa Bay. He will be opposed by former Rays pitcher, Edwin Jackson.
