Here comes Tampa with budding star Austin Meadows leading the way. Rays throwing one of their openers, Ryan Stanek or Yonny Chirinos tonight, followed by aces Blake Snell and Charlie Morton the next two games. Yanks counter with CC Sabathia tonight. Tanaka on Saturday, Mr. Undecided on Sunday. And their awesome bullpen, awesome now that Chad Green seems fixed and Tommy Kahnle is lights out again. Nice coaching there, in both Scranton and NY. Meadows, stolen from Pittsburgh last July in the Chris Archer deal, is hitting .348 with 8 HR and 21 RBI in 89 ABs. OPS of 1.122. He is a 6-foot-3, 220-pound right fielder who can run. 23 years old. Tampa is better on the road than in The Dump. 14-5 vs. 12-10. The Rays’ team pitching ERA is 2.82, easily the best among AL clubs. Yankees took two of three in The Dump last weekend. They trail Tampa by one-half game while Boston sits four back. The Sox host red-hot Houston this weekend.
