Rays and Jays

Good news! The win has shifted here at Charlotte Sports Park. It's now blowing from left to right for today's game with the visiting Blue Jays. That means the fans inside the stadium can read the banner flying from the flag pole beyond left field that proclaims the Rays "2008 American League Champions."

It's a strong breeze, so the sign is easy to read.

It wasn't that way for the first two games when the wind blew from right to left, meaning the lettering on the flag was backwards to those inside the stadium.

A quick check of the field and no, the distances to the outfield walls haven't gotten any deeper.

The rain is gone, the clouds remained and the wind is blowing out to right.

There will be baseball, and here are the lineups:

Wayne Lydon CF
Russ Adams 2B
Adam Lind DH
Scott Rolen 3B
Jason Lane LF
Brian Jeroloman C
Adam Loewen RF
David Cooper 1B
