Pirates vs. Rays Prediction and Odds for June 25 (Oneil Cruz Deserves Better Than Tropicana Field)

Pirates +1.5 (-155) 7.0 (Over -120 / Under +100) Frankly, I think it’s unjust that we have to watch these games get played at Tropicana Field when they could have easily been scheduled at PNC Park.

The Clemente Bridge (even though it is going through repairs right now) is an incredible sight. Hell, I have the Clemente Bridge tattooed on my rib cage. Instead we have to watch baseball games in the ugliest dome in sports. For that reason alone, I lean towards the Pirates.
