The Devil Rays just completed a 3-game sweep of the Royals and are off to the second best start in team history at 7-6. So far the team has played nine games against the Orioles and the Royals, two teams that were expected to be among the worst in baseball. In the next 22 games, we will get a better idea of how good this team is and how good they can be. Quite frankly if the the team doesn’t start pitching better, this could get ugly. Don Mossi ugly. This upcoming stretch includes Boston (6 games), New York (5), Texas (5), Oakland (3) and Seattle (3). In addition, 15 of these games (including the first 9) will be on the road.
