It's no surprise that the Tampa Bay Rays are the #1 team in baseball right now.
The Rays, currently with a 32-15 record and at the top of the AL East, are showing their World Series birth two years ago was no fluke.
David Price is leading a stellar rotation of young pitchers, with a 7-1 record and a 2.41 ERA.
Four of their starting pitchers have an ERA under 3.00, which is putting pressure on opposing offenses to put runs on the board.
The 3.09 ERA held by the Rays pitchers is the lowest in MLB.
And when they have leads, they keep them. Closer Rafael Soriano has converted 13 of 13 saves.
On the offensive end, the Rays are averaging 5.2 runs per game, which is good for third in the American League.
They will have their work cut out for them, as four of their next five series come against teams with winning
With the Yankees and Blue Jays close on their heels, they will have to maintain their consistency.
If they continue to play with the same intensity, expect the Rays to be a tough team to beat this season.
