Both the Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays had high hopes for last season but they were both denied the chance to make a deep postseason run. The Rays were able to make it into the postseason but didn’t make it past the ALDS while the Blue Jays missed the postseason entirely.
This season both teams are looking to improve their fortunes and their Opening Day pitching duel could prove to be one of the more entertaining games of the day. Past Cy Young winners will be going at it with R.A. Dickey looking to lock himself in with the Blue Jays while David Price may be only playing half season with the Rays.
Dickey and Price know how to bring their best stuff and we should expect nothing short of a great pitchers duel on Opening Day in Tampa Bay.
