The Astros might be the one team playing to pre-season expectation. Most were high and they enter Saturday action with the best record in the league. Especially impressive is that they are 5-1 on the road.
They are winning every which way. The sign of a really good team.
The Astros have the second best ERA in the Majors and that is despite the less than flattering numbers of Joe Musgrove. He is creating some doubt as to whether his future in teh Majors will be in the rotation.
He has given up 20 hits in just 15 IP.
Tampa Bay Rays
Last year the Rays hit a lot of homers but did not score a lot of runs. This year they are again hitting the long ball but they are in the Top 10 in runs.
Combine that with a strong ptiching staff and they can be in the race all season long.
Matt Andriese is off to a good start. The Jays might have got to him in his first start but in two since he has given up just 1 ER in two straight starts.
He is not going to dominate with his stuff but knows how to pitch.

Is Houston the best team in the league? Maybe? They have been good on the road and even though they are not coming at the Rays witth their ace in this one Ithink the Astros will get the win.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Houston +105
I do like this Houston team. They can’t be this good all season long but Iam not a fan of Tampa. They are a sub .500 team in my eyes. I will be looking to fade them any time public perception is getting overly optimistic.
