Maddon: "I'd be surprised" if any deals



With the trade deadline less than an hour away, Rays manager Joe Maddon said he did not expect the Rays to make any deals.

"I'd be surprised,'' he said.

CF B.J. Upton, the subject of most speculation, has been taking the final hours in good humor, joking first with teammates by asking, "Should I even get dressed" then asking aloud if he was in the lineup. Then later, walking by reporters and announcing how much time there was left until the deadline.
