    The way the Bucs played against the 4-0 Packers, if they can keep it up, the Tompa Bay Bucs may have a chance at a Super Bowl. The D was fantastic.

    Just FYI, it was announced today that Tyler Glasnow and Blake Snell will be the Rays' starting pitchers for games 1 and 2. I would assume the game 3 starter would be Charlie Freakin' Morton.

    The days off help. We can run the 3 studs twice and have a bullpen day in between.
    Hopefully playoff Kershaw shows up.

    I'm hoping 1) Glasnow keeps the ball in the yard tonight, and, 2) Snell gets ahead in counts tomorrow to get some length before the evil "pitch count" or "third-time-through-the-order" knocks him out, and, 3) Meadows' and Lowe's bats wake up a little. If two of those three things happen, we can take one of the first two games and make this a very competitive series.

    Rays were off last night. Split second behind and off in timing on damn near everything, off balance, and couldn't adjust to LA's sudden taste for small ball. LA in contrast, looked crisp in every respect (hat's off to them). Hopefully tonight, the Rays get back into their groove, and maybe knock LA off balance a bit....

    Rays up!

    Rays need to score against Gonsolin and May, as Urias has been lights out in the postseason, 2 ER in 16 ip.

    Up early. Let's hold it Ray's. 5-2 Dodgers are threatening in the 5th.

    Snell has been chased. Ray's are going to have relievers fight off this Dodger onslaught. 5-2 Top 6.

    3 outs to go. 6-4 Top 9. Ray's badly need insurance. Dodgers are too good a team. Hold on Ray's and tie this series up.

    Snellzilla was brilliant tonight. I replayed the 6 pitches before the 2 run homer. THREE strikes were called balls. I mean inside the FoxBox strikes.
    That rattled him for a minute and led to his one bad pitch. Outside of that he was fire.

    AND to see B. Lowe blow up is an absolute sight for sore eyes.

    World Series is tied up.
