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

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!
