Florida Moon, Kiss Me Goodnight: 9/18 Game Thread, Jays at Rays

New, comments

I'm no fan of Florida but I do quite like the song that supplies today's title, by New Orleans musician Fred LeBlanc.

Scott Richmond is watching his chances to head into 2010 in the starting rotation evaporate as the season goes on. Richmond has been awful in September and wasn't all that good in August either, and is seeing his once very good season slip away. He'll try to turn it around today against the struggling Rays. James Shields pitches for Tampa.

As for today's lineup, Marco Scutaro gets today off, and J-Mac gets the start at shortstop.
