First Pitch: Monday 7:10, Tuesday 7:10, Wednesday 7:10, Thursday 7:10
Arms: Monday: Aaron Cook, RHP (3-10, 5.18 ERA) vs. Alex Cobb, RHP (9-8, 4.26 ERA)
Tuesday: Felix Doubront, LHP (10-9, 5.11 ERA) vs. Jeremy Hellickson, RHP (8-10, 3.22 ERA)

Thursday: Clay Buchholz, RHP (11-6, 4.33 ERA) vs. David Price, LHP (18-5, 2.54 ERA)
The Red Sox came off of the All-Star break and won 2 out of 3 in Tampa. The biggest contributors were Ortiz, Middlebrooks, Gonzalez, Nava, Ellsbury, and Aviles. Only half will appear in this series...maybe.
the Sox got the best of Hellickson and Shields, but Price won the battle against Buchholz. Now will be some time for revenge...Eh, I wouldn't count on it.
Laser Show: Dustin Pedroia
Don't Fall Behind: David Price
Just look at the numbers. Price is a Cy Young candidate and he will keep the Rays in the hunt. He is going to kill the weakest September lineup in the history of baseball.
How we see it goin' down
The Rays have had their struggles, but no where near the trouble of the Boston Red Sox. The Rays are hanging on to playoff hopes and they will play with everything they got. The Rays are going to win 3 and make a bid for a sweep.
