For starters, Rays-Orioles, Burrell out again

UPDATE, 4:33: Burrell not only isn't in the lineup, he's not even at the ballpark. He flew home this morning to have his lingering stiff neck checked by Dr. Tom Tolli, the team's St. Petersburg-based back specialist.

Pat Burrell is not in the lineup again today.
Burrell sat out Tuesday's game with a stiff neck and though he was said to be available, was not used as a pinch-hitter in a prime situation, two outs in the ninth against lefty closer George Sherrill when a home run would have tied the game.

Upton, cf
Crawford, lf
Longoria, 3b
Pena, 1b
Aybar, dh
Gross, rf
