Quote of the day
"Even if we don't do anything, I believe the group out here right now can get to the playoffs again. I'm still going to stand by my stance from the beginning, we're going to get to the World Series this year. I'm not backing down from that."
Joe Maddon, Rays manager, on if the Rays need to make any more moves
Rookie LHP Matt Moore, right, has been the best-dressed Ray on this road trip, wearing a suit to and from the park. He has to do it for the first six days — 100-degree heat or not — as terms of a bet he lost to RHP Alex Cobb. Cobb said it was initially three days over a FIFA Soccer video game match, but Moore went double or nothing and lost. Cobb quipped: "He's been kind of slacking on the tie."
