Maddon says he doesn't anticipate any deals, neither does Upton



The Rays, as usual, have held exhaustive talks on an extensive number of trade possibilities.

But with the deadline for non-waiver deals Sunday at 4 p.m., manager Joe Maddon said Thursday he does not anticipate them making any deals, including CF B.J. Upton.

"I really would anticipate that we're probably going to have the same guys over the next week,''   Maddon said. "And two weeks, three weeks ... "

Upton also said he does not expect be moved, with trades already sending Carlos Beltran to the Giants, Colby Rasmus to the Jays and Kosuke Fukudome to the Indians.

"Nobody else needs a centerfielder, everybody that needed a centerfielder just got one,'' Upton said. "I just don't see it happening. ... I still don't think I'm going anywhere.''
