Is it just me or does it feel great to finally get a win? I would put that about the Yankees getting smashed by the Indians. Even though that is a great sight we rather see the Rays win anyday. Today’s game features James Shield against Felix Hernandez at a 6:40 EST. start time.What To Watch For:

Could Crawford’s slump finally be over, or was it just a freakish game. Tonight should answer the question about C.C’s game last night. We all hope the slump is gone for good.

James Shields makes his fourth start of the season today in hopes of finally looking like the anchor he was last season. This game might be a sign of how Big Game James looks for the rest of the season on the road. Also, it would be nice to see him eat up innings to help out the bullpen.

X-Factor:
The Zobrist fan club seems to keep growing. Even Rays Revolutionary has hopped aboard. Look for him to stay hot if he is in the line-up.

Navi needs to come around sooner or later. His struggles as of late seem to raise questions about his all-star performance last season. As he does look good defensively behind the plate look for him to pick it up during his at-bats as well.

  1. Tonight I’m looking to see if the Rays can do it 2 days in a row. Facing that scrub last night is one thing… today it’s the real deal! Felix Hernandez is the guy the Rays need to beat to really get this streak going.
