With Zack Greinke and Tyler Glasnow probable starters here, we have one of the most seasoned and experienced playoff pitchers against one of the least. However, neither possesses stellar playoff numbers.
The former-Cy Young Award winner, Greinke, has had another tumultuous season. The Houston Astros, however, after losing four consecutive starts by the RH, have now won his last two starts, but both ND's. The Tampa Bay Rays have won an astounding 11 straight games that Glasnow has appeared. A streak going back until the beginning of August.
The Rays are 5-1 the last six meetings with the Astros, 6-1 the last seven playoff games, and 5-1 the last six vs. the AL West. There are exceptions to every rule. I am a firm believer in postseason experience. But, Greinke is shaky. So, I must side with the hotter Glasnow here. TAMPA BAY RAYS
