"I don’t expect it to happen. The Astros aren’t a great matchup for anyone, but a team that puts the ball in play hard is a particular problem for these Red Sox, a bad defensive club all around the field. The Rays, in losing to the Sox, hit .255 on balls in play. That number is headed up, and that’s probably going to be what swings the series. Astros in five."
