Expectations for Saturday night

Joe Maddon told reporters that he would not be surprised if the umpires talked to both sides prior to Saturday night’s game to warn against further action between the Rays and Red Sox.

When asked if he expected any carryover from Friday night’s action, Maddon noted: “I hope not, I hope not.  I can’t say that I don’t expect it.  Speaking for us there’s nothing that’s going to come from us to them. It was a very heated moment. … I’m hoping not. I’m wanting to get back to playing baseball. I really do.”

Maddon added that he wants the emphasis to be on playing better baseball and trying to advance in the standings because, despite the fact the Rays are nine games under .500, he does not feel they are out of the AL East race.
