Manager Joe Maddon has sported a new look during recent Rays home games, wearing a custom hoodie with the lower part of the sleeves cut off. He said it's more comfortable inside the dome. "It's the friar look," Maddon quipped. "So I wanted to introduce it as the 'Froodie.' "
Off-day plans of the day
While some Rays planned to relax during Monday's rare off day at home, manager Joe Maddon said he and his wife, Jaye, were going to move into their new Tampa house, formerly owned by the Bucs' first coach, the late John McKay. Maddon said he wouldn't do the heavy lifting, hiring movers. "It's 'Supervise Move Day,' " he said.
