For starters, Rays vs. Red Sox



UPDATE, 5:53: Rays manager Joe Maddon said he plans to keep Desmond Jennings in the bottom third of the order so he can both relax and work on reorganizing his strike zone without the pressure that accompanies hitting leadoff, though he is still considered their leadoff hitter. ... Elliot Johnson has had the assignment the last three games, though Maddon said he may use others. ... Adrian Gonzalez is out of the Boston lineup again, this time due to back stiffness. ... Also, for those who follow Twitter, outspoken Rays DH Luke Scott has joined, at @LukeScottOP.
