Manager Joe Maddon said other than the "awkward" art sculpture in center — mechanical marlins and flapping flamingos — he liked the "Dodge Challenger green" outfield walls. "Circa 1970, RT 440 6-pack," Maddon said. "Very desirable color." Number of the day 39 Parks the Rays have played in after Friday night's debut at Marlins Park in Miami. Going national Rays TV analyst Brian Anderson is more comfortable heading into tonight's Fox broadcast with Dick Stockton than his first experience in late May. "It was different," Anderson said. "I left the ballpark that night and called my mother, and was like, "Mom, what just happened?' " Anderson said it was an adjustment going from regular partner Dewayne Staats to Stockton but pointed out, "It was a fun ride, I'll tell you that."
