It is amazing how poorly Boston has been competing this season. They are proving that you can’t really win without pitching.
Tampa has not been great but if Boston had their pitching the Sox would probably be competing with the Yankees at the top of the division.
Boston Red Sox
This is definitely not going to be a good or a normal season for the Red Sox. Right now light hitting Christan Vazquez is leading the team in homers and that is just the start.
Kevin Pillar, who struggled to make contact while with division rival Toronto is leading the team in hitting at the moment. Where are the big bats?
Martin Perez is a soft tossing lefty and always one of my fade candidates. His profile is about the worst for Fenway Park. I know the Red Sox are desperate for pitching but he just doesn’t make sense.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa is off to a sluggish start and has yet to assume their place behind the Yankees in the AL East. They could really use the infusion of offense a return from Austin Meadows could provide.
Overall the team is hitting .210 heading into Tuesday action. That is pretty dreadful and since it is not married with much power the offense has been mediocre at best.
Surprisingly Ryan Yarbrough has been the best most effective starter for the Rays. He is never going to dominate but he knows how to pitch to contact and use the defense.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
Neither of these teams are playing great ball. I have to fade Perez though, otherwise I will hate myself later.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rays RL -1.5
Having to cover the number with the Rays is not ideal but Perez is going to get knocked around and probably not even last four innings. Yarbrough will go about is business.
