For starters, Rays-Royals, looking for the sweep



UPDATE, 1:31: LHP Scott Kazmir said he felt fine this morning and both he and manager Joe Maddon seem confident he will make his next start as scheduled on Thursday.
"Everything feels good,'' Kazmir said. "It just feels a little bit tight just because of being dehydrated, and that's normal. They said it was supposed to be even worse than it feels now, so it feels phenomenal.''

NEWS: The Rays are readying to face the Royals seeking to complete a sweep. Lots of interest in the British Open in the clubhouse - with Grant Balfour rooting hard for Australian mate Mathew Goggin, J.P. Howell for Chris Wood (because of the resemblance!) and a bulk of the veterans, coaches and manager Joe Maddon for Tom Watson.
