Sixty wins at the 2/3 mark means 90 wins is possible...right?

This shift has the outfielders too close together.

Sweep! Sweep! Sweep!

Well, more hitting will be needed for that to happen. Travis Shaw sits this one out, unsurprisingly. Eric Thames drops to fifth in the order with Eric Sogard returning to the top, while Jimmy Nelson (9-5, 3.37) looks to keep shutting out the Rays. Tampa Bay counters with Chris Archer (8-6, 3.89). Thames is in left with Ryan Braun at DH, so let's hope no great plays are needed out there. Or good ones. Or average ones. Easy ones...yeah, that's it.
