Ready for the Rays

Little CC needs to practice his victory jump a little more often.

RHP Phil Hughes vs. RHP Wade Davis (just what the Rays need, another promising young pitcher)

RHP Javier Vazquez vs. RHP Matt Garza (fresh off his no hitter)

LHP CC Sabathia vs. RHP James Shields (his sudden surge in K/9 has hidden the rise in his H/9 and his HR/9, for now)

The Rays are on a hot streak right now, having won 8 of their 10 games since dropping 2 of 3 to the Yankees.

Of course, the Yanks aren't doing too poorly themselves, having gone 9-4 since the All Star Break.

The Rays are hoping some major reinforcement arrives this weekend, while the Yankees are looking to tweak the bench/pen.


August is nearly here, and the pennant race starts in earnest tonight.
