Change of plans: No Manny in Kissimmee



Rays manager Joe Maddon decided to decline Manny Ramirez's offer to make the long trip to Kissimmee on Thursday, and the veteran DH won't be in the lineup against the Astros.
Ramirez had asked to play and Maddon initially said yes, but then decided upon further thought that Ramirez, who has already has 47 plate appearances, had been playing enough and would get the day off. Chris Carter will now be the DH.
