MLB: ALDS-Rays Workouts Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

It isn’t hard to find your rooting interests here, right? The Trashcan Astros face the nine-lives A’s. The Damn Yankees face the upstart Rays.

Here’s the early game lineups:

Not doing gamethreads vs. Houston this year, I forgot that their obnoxious social media doesn’t actually just tweet out something simple like ... 29 other teams do. They put up some 20 second video that STILL doesn’t tell you the lineup. Trash. So, here’s their ALDS roster:


Here’s the Rays lineup for this evening. No Yanquis yet, so I’ll pop it in later or just trust you know you it’ll be nine guys the TBS crew will go apeshit over for nine innings plus pre and postgame.
