Game 1: Mark Buehrle (14-7, 3.76 ERA) vs Erasmo Ramirez (11-6, 3.65 ERA)

Here’s hoping Buehrle can get himself deep into this game. Getting a complete game is not out of the question but it will be difficult. He is 8.2 innings shy of 200 for a 15th consecutive season. It has already been tossed around the clubhouse that if he gets himself deep enough into this game that he may get a shot at getting the remaining innings out of the bulpen on Sunday.

  • Considering he is kind of on the outside looking in at the post season rotation this would be a nice way to end the season…especially if he retires as some think he might.

    Ramirez has been a pleasant addition to the Rays rotation. He isn’t overpowering but he does know how to keep the ball down as evidenced by his 1.11 GO/AO which is by far his best ratio in his 4 year major league career.

    His WHIP is great at 1.10, so it will be interesting to see if he can go into the offseason on a high note or if the vaunted Blue Jaus offense might try to make it a little more unpleasant. He certainly has put himself into the discussion as one of the Rays top 5 arms.
