I think it's pretty close to what people expected. Garza and Shields are out of their typical order, but Shields's primary issue this season has been a fairly extreme rate of his fly balls going over the fence. Keeping him out of Arlington might be a good idea for the Rays. There was some question over who would start game four, between Davis and Jeff Neimann, but most expected the rookie Davis.

This is a good rotation but nothing to be intimidated by. More on that later. . .
