lunch bunch



Now that that Super Bowl is over, we can get back to the business of baseball.

The Rays held what is essentially the kickoff - oops, there's another football reference - of their winter caravan, the Tampa Chamber luncheon at the downtown Hyatt Regency. Among the more interesting things said, manager Joe Maddon said new Japanese infielder Akinori Iwamura will "most likely" play third rather than move to second, the number of over-the-air TV games in Orlando has been increased, more changes are coming to make Tropicana Field more fan friendly, and executive VP Andrew Friedman reiterated they are looking to acquire relievers.

For more on the luncheon, see Thursday's Times.
