For starters, Rays vs Mariners

It's been a busy afternoon here at Tropicana Field, where the Rays will host the Mariners. The big news was DH Pat Burrell getting designated for assignment, and that Hank Blalock was selected from Triple-A Durham (he'll be here by gametime).


The lineup was tweaked a little bit, with Willy Aybar at DH against lefty Jason Vargas, and Carlos Pena moved down a spot. Manager Joe Maddon said that it was just a move for today, and Pena - who has two hits in his last 46 at-bats - could be back in the fifth spot tommorrow.

The Rays lineup:
Bartlett ss
Crawford lf
Zobrist 2b
Longoria 3b
Aybar dh
Pena 1b
Upton cf
Navarro c
Kapler rf
Shields p
