You might think that 14-3 Chris Tillman has an awesome price on his head in this one, knowing that he is a 14-3 pitcher. However, when you look back at his season, two of those three losses were handed to him by none other than these Rays. Tampa Bay has always had a knack for figuring out how to push some runs across against Tillman, and it should have no problem doing the exact same thing in this one. David Price has been a machine since coming off of the DL on July 2nd. He has nine starts since that point, and he has led the team to a 7-2 record in those games, including pitching four complete games and throwing at least seven innings in the rest of those starts. There has to be some concern that this is the first time he has pitched the game after throwing more than 105 pitches, and he is doing so on a regular four-day rest period instead of six days. The “Price” is right in this one though, as we think that Tampa Bay is deserving of being a significantly bigger favorite with their ace on the hill.
