For starters, Rays at Mariners with Upton in and Longoria 5th



UPDATE, 3:22: Maddon said he dropped Longoria in the order - it's the first time this season he's been lower than fourth - in hopes "a different outlook on life" helps him get out of his latest funk as his average is back down to .233. ... Maddon said he hasn't heard anything on the trade front and expects nothing to happen between now and Sunday's 4 p.m. deadline for nonwaiver deals. 

DEVELOPING: The Rays are looking to make it 3 wins in a row for the first time in more than a month when they play the Mariners today.

CF B.J. Upton, the subject of extensive trade rumors, is in the lineup. Evan Longoria was dropped to 5th in the order.

The lineup:
Jennings lf
Damon dh
Zobrist 2b
Kotchman 1b
Longoria 3b
Joyce rf
Upton cf
Chirinos c
Rodriguez ss
Cobb p
