Rained out in Fort Lauderdale

Players live for the day a spring training game is rained out. Some work in the batting cage, a trip around the weight room, maybe, and the rest of the day off.

The Rays had such a day Saturday.

Only it wasn't the type of rain out they longed for.

The team bused three hours to Fort Lauderdale and watched as heavy rain turned the field into a series of puddles and flooded the dugout.

Their game with the Orioles was washed out.

Back on the bus for the three-hour trip home.

The lesson: be careful what you wish for.
