Waiting for word on All-Star
We're still awaiting word on who the Rays representative to the All-Star Game will be. RHP James Shields is the odd-on favorite to head to San Francisco -- but LF Carl Crawford, closer Al Reyes, 2B B.J. Upton and SS Brendan Harris are other possibilities. Shields starts today, hoping to end the Rays' six-game skid, and Rays manager Joe Maddon said he wouldn't likely tell Shields he made the team until after the game.
Crawford and Carlos Pena are back in the lineup against LHP Cliff Lee after having last night off against man mountain C.C. Sabathia. Josh Wilson makes his second straight start at second base, with about 20 friends and family in the stands from his hometown of Pittsburgh.
