    Like the Angels, Athletics, and Royals that they went 3-7 against? It's kind of funny immediately after a certain poster sang their praises as an elite playoff team, despite the statistics saying otherwise.

    Sandy Alacantra has thrown 220 innings this year. 27 more innings than the next closest pitcher. Based on the Marlins schedule he might be able to get a couple more starts and clear 230 innings which would be the first pitcher to clear that number since David Price threw 230 in 2016.

    Not even many guys likely to clear even 200 this year. Manoah has a good shot.

    Just hit a rough stretch. They aren't this bad and they maybe weren't as good as advertised before. They're still a solid team.

    I agree. They probably aren't a playoff team without the new format and an easy division, but the offense is finally average thanks to J-Rod and the pitching is a bit above average too. They have a good future core if the vets don't regress and bullpen volatility doesn't bite them.

    Eugenio Suarez would be one of best offensive players on the Jays. The Ms are down him and JRod and the protection they afford other batters.

    I do not want to face the Ms in a short series.

    I believe their pen is better them ours also.

    They sure lucked out with Suarez. He certainly had negative value in that trade and was a fairly significant salary dump.

    At age 31, he's somehow changed from a defensive liability to a positive defender and is in the midst of his best season ever.

    None of these potential playoff teams are 'easy' matchups, but I think we have a far better chance of beating them than a Rays team with vastly superior pitching and a versatile offense that has performed similarly against better opposition.

    I don't trust the Rays pitching staff at all. McClanahan hasn't been as good lately, and is battling a shoulder issue. Springs has thrown like 100 more innings than he has in any season since 2018. Rasmussen has thrown like twice as many innings as he ever has in a season. Baz is dead. Converting Springs and Rasmussen to starters has worked very well and will have played a big role in getting them to the playoffs, but I think the Rays are just going to run out of steam.
