Live from Port Charlotte, Day 6



UPDATE, 10:47: Manager Joe Maddon did most of the talking in the pre-workout address, with an emphasis on getting off to a better start and taking care of the little things. Team president Matt Silverman also spoke to the group, as did travel director Jeff Ziegler and a few other team officials. Also, there's no rain, and at least several dozen fans here watching.

UPDATE, 9:43: Both 1B Carlos Pena and INF Sean Rodriguez are in the clubhouse so, in essence, the gang's all here.

UPDATE, 9:35: Expect the Rays to release at least partial list of the summer concert series today, with word there are at least a couple of Hall of Fame bands in the group.

DEVELOPING: Clouds are formed but the rain is expected to hold off until mid-afternoon so the Rays should be okay for their first full-squad workout of the spring. The players are undergoing pre-spring training physicals, so the clubhouse is closed to the media this morning. Only two players didn't report early - 1B Carlos Pena and 2B Sean Rodriguez - and both are expected to be here today.
