I really don’t have much to say about tonight’s game or the series with the Rays. Tropicana Field will probably resemble the old Olympic Stadium in Montreal or the sparsely crowded Astrodome, places that were somnolent even on TV. Maybe we’ll hear someone blowing one of those old long plastic trumpet things from the upper deck. Or some old leather lung behind home plate.
Maybe Dick Vitale will be there.
Tonight’s lineup: Bourn LF, Maybin, Markakis DH, Pierzynski, Swisher 1B, Peterson, Garcia, Simmons, Perez RF.
