Stokes as the Fifth Starter? Hmm....Scratch that

Over the airwaves during the Rays' spring training game it's been announced that Brian Stokes has been told he is not in the running for the fifth rotation slot, but is headed for the bullpen and has a shot at being the closer.

Now I can't foresee him being the closer over guys like Reyes and Orvella just yet, but I do like the idea of Stokes being in the pen to start the year.

Also coming way of the radio broadcast, the Rays new color scheme will be unveiled by the end of March.
