We were 11-12 against them in 2012 (9-9 regular season)

What does "always" mean? They took 2 of 3. We split the season last year when they were good. When you start 2 good pitchers, you always have a chance to win.
It seems when people look at pitching match-ups to predict the outcome, they often forget that our pitchers get to pitch against the Rays line-up.
Score 20 runs in 3 games.
2 weeks later we are doubtful to score 6. No RNT, you aren't always negative.
Haven't heard anything, but my guess is it will only be 2 or 3 games, and thus will come right at the end of his DL stint. He'll probably be at the back end of the original 2-4 week diagnosis, so I'd peg his return around May 7th when they get back from the West coast.
That's assuming no setbacks or complications, obviously.
It's hard to beat them when you have the ghosts of Monument Park swooping in and knocking balls out of AJ's glove.

The Yankees won a series at home vs. the Orioles last night for the first time since September 2011.
Obviously meant regular season, and that was technically not a home series, anyway.
1. other people's kids! (or I'm probably screwed regardless)
2. other people's kids! (or I'll live in the city all my life and never have a lawn)
3. other people's kids! (or I'll just understand all music because I'm awesome)

Ha thank god that jackass doesn't post in baseball threads anymore
Rats. The Rockies triple-header plan was a joke.
UPDATE: Marc Carig tweets that Horwitz was having some fun. So this was just a fun imaginative exercise in the end. The Mets will be in Colorado for a four-game set with the Rockies and the forecast is not looking good.
I know that, but if you were making an honest bet you wouldn't bet on scoring more than 3 runs against either Price or Moore. Doesn't mean it couldn't happen, but it's not likely. That is why the first game is so pivotal. We HAVE to beat up on Carmona.
Price hasn't been great in his 3 starts this year but you still expect him to dominate when he pitches. That isn't negative. Moore has yet to give up an earned run this year through 11.1 IP.
The question was posed whether we will go O/U 11.5 runs in the series. I think more likely under than over. I like that because I answer it that way I'm "negative."
As much potential as Moore has, he's still unlikely to throw more than 6 innings, so it's not like they can't score some runs after he leaves.
This is also true but that being said I'd rather not have to bank on beating both Price and Moore in order to take the series, obviously. I think we can probably win one of those games but winning both will be a tall order - those guys are good. Would feel much better if we just pounded Carmona / Hernandez.
The Rays are giving up, on average, 13.9 runs per 3 games. We are scoring, on average 14.0 runs per 3 games. Expecting us to score half of that is certainly not positive.
I hope TB scores 12 runs today.
That is fair. In the 2 games he's started this year the Rays beat Cleveland 2-0 and Texas 4-0. Not saying we can't have success against him, but the question was O/U 11.5 runs for the series and if I was honestly sitting down to make a bet I'd probably have to go under on that.
I do expect him to allow some runs at some point this year. We hit him pretty hard the last time we faced him in 2012.
Do you expect David Price to pitch to a 5.82 ERA and 1.64 WHIP all year?
My god you guys get offended so easily. I didn't even say anything that arguable - just that it is unlikely that we score more than 6 runs total in 2 games against 2 top pitchers. A perfectly reasonable guess.
On Roberts, still no baseball activities as of yesterday. Doubtful he'll be ready when eligibile to come off the DL. Hamstrings are tricky.
This is a big homestand before that ridiculous west coast swing. Honestly I'd take 5-6 on the west coast trip and run, so I'd really like 6-3 or so on this homestand.
Go away, KA!
Right - and like I said it's not impossible. It's baseball anything can happen. I watched Cesar Izturis hit a HR off of CC Sabathia before. I've seen a crappy O's team chase Mike Mussina in 1.1 innings. We beat up David Price on opening day.
Nonetheless I think that 6 runs between those two games is a relatively reasonable prediction.
FWIW, ignoring individual games and even individual series, I am perfectly okay with a 6-6 record after 3 home games and 9 road games.
I'm jus' sayin'.
It's a very tough open to the schedule all around.
