Yes, this is what they are supposed to be doing... Teams choke and lose to horrible teams all the time. They are taking care of business, exactly what world series contenders do. Lock them in now, I'm telling you.

Worth noting that the Rays have covered the -1.5 runline in all 6 of their wins this month.
