Didnt the Rays just take 2 of 3 from the Rangers?
Anything can happen in a short series.
Rays have good pitching and that is always a factor.
Orioles havent been taken seriously all year but are a team that wins. They have heart. A good bullpen. Havent lost a game all year when leading in the 7th inning or later. Excel in winning 1 run games and extra inning games.
Tigers could get on a roll - but havent shown it yet. Facing Verlander twice in a short series could be tough.
A's are playing well.
Angels have the pitching - if on they could be tough.
There is no favorite really, except the Rangers, and they have shown some cracks. depends on the pitching.
