The Rays have baseball’s best home record at 9-1 after taking down the Mariners in the first game of this series in extra innings on Monday night. That being said, we really think that Matt Moore, Tuesday’s starting pitcher, is being overplayed. He is just 0-1 with a 4.68 ERA, and he really hasn’t been anywhere near as dominating in the regular season as he was last year in his first postseason appearance against the Texas Rangers. Seattle’s Hector Noesi has been awful in his first full year in the bigs, going just 1-2 with an 8.83 ERA, but he has some potential for sure. The Mariners are still sneakily playing good ball at the moment, and if Noesi can make this a bullpen game, it is one that could be there for the taking. This is a nice price on Seattle for sure, even on the road clear across the country.
