A pregame interview with Joe Maddon
Rays manager meets the media prior to Game 4 of the World Series
Did you get enough of sleep last night?JOE MADDON: Yeah. 4:30 to 1, how's that? It works. Just the mood of the team today? And who will be playing right field for you? JOE MADDON: The mood is typical, everybody is in good order. Right field will be Zorilla Ben Zobrist will be in right field. Just trying to look at everything, the match ups, et cetera. I know the Blanton splits, but the lefties might hit for more power against him. Been wanting to get Ben out there a little bit more often, if possible. The fact that he's our only extra really middle infielder, weighs into the decision a bit. But I want to get him out there to get his bat in the lineup.
