The players are put in the best possible situations to succeed
The Rays usually find themselves in situations in which they have the player at the plate, on the mound, or in the field that would give them the best opportunity to win the game.
Mike Trout can’t bat in every spot in the lineup, so having the game’s elite player doesn’t help too much, just check the Angels record.
So you get Ryan Yarbrough to give up weak groundballs to the Rays perfectly shifted infield. You get Brett Phillips to take over for Austin Meadows late in the game to provide that extra fraction point.
It’s all the small things that lead to the Rays being a great team.
Also having Wander Franco.
