For starters: Rays vs. Jays, Cy vs. Cy
UPDATE, 5:48: The Rays have five left-handed bats in the lineup tonight vs. Dickey, whose speciality is a hard knuckleball:
And the Jays lineup, with 8 righthanders vs. Price:
DEVELOPING: For all the drama of the week, what with the blown leads, J.A. Happ's injury and manager Joe Maddon's protestations, the Rays have a chance to split their four-game series with the Jays and move back closer to .500.
The stage for tonight's game is a rare matchup between the reigning Cy Young Award winners, the Rays David Price vs. the Jays R.A. Dickey.
Neither has pitched well this season combining for just three wins.
The Rays have been scoring well, but the problem has been the pitching, the rotation and the bullpen.
The Rays are not taking batting practice today. so the clubhouse doesn't open until 3:40.
