The Tampa Bay Rays have finally woke up and are playing good baseball, coming off an 11-game road trip where they posted a 9-2 mark. Tonight they send Jake Odorizzi (4-7, 4.18) to the mound as they face off with James Shields (8-4, 3.93) and the Kansas City Royals. The Royals have also been playing good baseball until this weekend, when they lost two of three games at Cleveland. Shields already beat the Rays in an earlier outing this season, but has struggled over his last three outings, where he is winless. Consider that the Royals are 10-2 in Shields' last 12 starts vs. teams with a losing record and 20-6 in his last 26 road starts. The Rays are 5-11 in Odorizzi's last 16 starts. We like Shields to bounce back with a solid performance and the Royals have been solid on the road this season, so we're going to back them here tonight in Tampa. The Sharps say...

The Rays are also a historically horrible team the first game back home after a road trip, I am a Rays season ticket holder for 5+ years now, I can't bring myself to bet against them and sit there and root against them but I will not be surprised if/when they lose this game! Good Luck!

KC is so inconsistent I cannot make a case for either team here...line is sharp and where it should be (no offense to River city Sharps) ..Kansas City never got off the bus in Cleveland yesterday and Shields is totally unpredictable- if he has run support maybe...Kansas City an enigma wrapped in a riddle right now. I want none of thing is that KC is vastly better on the road than at home....

Shields first start ever at Trop Cana Field since joining the Royals. He leads TAMPA all time in Wins, strikeouts, CGames,  shutouts. Do you think he will be pumped up? The Royals want to do good by him. Royals Win. The past means nothing. Today is a new day.

I'm willing to ride with the Royals again, but if they suck again, it'll be the last time.
