The Rays are considering flying into either Orlando or Fort Myers if the weather is better there and then busing back to Tampa/St. Petersburg.

They also are looking at spending the night in Boston if necessary and then flying back when they can on Thursday, which is an off-day, in advance of hosting the Blue Jays.
