Manny Ramirez arrives at Tampa Bay Rays' spring training camp

Manny Ramirez showed up today at the Tampa Bay Rays' spring training camp — five days early, it should be noted — ending one of the potential questions of the spring.

He didn't make much of a grand entrance (no entourage, just one man with him), introduced himself to the security guard and asked where to find team travel director Jeff Ziegler and how to get to the clubhouse.

The Rays were due on the field at 10 a.m. for their first workout of the spring, with at least 37 of the 38 pitchers and catcher expected (and Juan Cruz potentially delayed).

Principal owner Stuart Sternberg also is there, along with team president Matt Silverman.

Among the pitchers scheduled to throw today are new acquisitions Kyle Farnsworth, Joel Peralta, Adam Russell, Chris Archer, Dirk Hayhurst, Cesar Cabral and Cory Wade. Also, returnees James Shields and David Price.

    Lightning Strikes

    BRANDON — No one is engraving the Stanley Cup. No one has begun stuffing the league MVP ballot box for Nikita Kucherov.

    The Lightning, with a win tonight, would match the best start in franchise history, 7-1-1 in the 2003-04 Cup season.
