David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

Cesar Ramos, Erik Bedard and Jake Odorizzi will all audition for the No. 5 role.

Okay. Now that that's jinxed, what else have we got going on?

Hey! It's Mikie... Mahtook... Mu-toook... Mahhh-tuk... Maah-ain't-gonna-work-here-anymore--HAHAHAHAHA!

So this supposed five-man competition for the fifth-man rotation spot? Let's look at the early favorites:

I've got my money on Erik Bedard. These are all not *great* options; or rather: No option is the obvious option. But I can imagine the Rays FO and Maddon preferring the grisly veteran.

So I lied earlier. Today's game is not on television. But you can listen on the radio.

TV Day is Friday!
