Tampa Bay Rays news and links: Anyone else weirdly worried about this Toronto series?

They seem like the perfect pesky spoilers

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Rays got the job done with two out of three against the Orioles, and they now have a day off before a four-game set against the Blue Jays.

The Rays, by all rights, should be looking for a series win. This is a Jays team that has a winning percentage below .400 for the season, and against whom the Rays are 8-4 this season. But for some reason, the fact that it’s a four-game set, and something about that young lineup in Toronto feels like this may be a split or a Blue Jays series win, which would be a big bummer in an AL Wild Card race this tight.

Hopefully, if we get out in front of this, we can reverse jinx it into not happening, but I wouldn’t be shocked if Bichette, Vladito, and Little Biggio tormented us this weekend.
