For starters, Rays at White Sox



UPDATE, 1:11: White Sox lineup:
Pierre lf
Beckham 2b
Rios cf
Konerko 1b
Quentin rf
Pierzynski c
Vizquel ss
Teahen dh
Morel 3b
Floyd p

UPDATE, 1:01: Manager Joe Maddon said that despite the lack of hitting he is pleased with how the Rays are playing otherwise, and that they don't plan to make any major changes to their plans despite their 1-7 start and the sudden retirement of Manny Ramirez and injury to Evan Longoria. "It's a hitting situation right now,'' he said. "But while you go through moments, the thing that's most important to me is that you still pitch well, that you still play defense well,  that you still run the bases well. And as long as I can still see that I still have a lot of hope for the entire situation.'' ... So Maddon said they will continue to mix and match the best they can to cobble a lineup (rather than just decide to play Sean Rodriguez or Matt Joyce every day), and that it's probably not fair to judge them overall until they get Longoria back from the DL. ...  

DEVELOPING: The Rays lineup for the finale of the four-game series in Chicago, with the sun out and temps in the 80s - yes, 80s! - expected today:

Fuld lf
Damon dh
Upton cf
D. Johnson 1b
Zobrist 2b
Joyce rf
Rodriguez 3b
Shoppach c
Brignac ss
Niemann p
