Up until first pitch, use the comments section to predict who you think will be the Sunburst Player of the Game. (be sure to use a valid email address while leaving the comment). The commenter that correctly predicts who we will name the Sunburst Player of the Game the most times in the second-half, will win some serious bragging rights (and a t-shirt from the Rays Index store).

Check Marc Topkin’s blog for the starting lineups.




  1. Charles says:

    I’ll play along, but if I end up winning a t-shirt again, I’ll cede it to the next lower person so we can have more people flying the Rayshead Army colors.

    So, in honor of my killer Bossman Jr. shirt, I am going to start the proceedings by picking Bossman Jr.

  2. Rayhawk says:

    Thanks Cork,,, im happy now….;o)

    Longo please.

  3. ClemsonRay says:

    Pat Burrell

  4. MikeD says:

    Pena with at least one dinga – and I’ll be sportin’ my brand new ZORILLA! shirt at the game

    • MikeD says:

      and following Charles’s lead, if my gut helps me pick some winnas this go-round, I too will cede my shirt, if I win – looks like there’s no second and third this time

  5. FlavaDave says:

    BIG GAME JAMES. Our offense hasnt come to life when he has faced off against younger, less stellar pitchers but hopefully they give him just enough tonight

  7. Dre says:

    Carl Crawford!!!

  8. I say it’s Jason Bartlett. He pulled off the comeback double in Toronto & he can do it again.

  9. smelpy says:

    LONGO… he’s my man and he’s who’s hot (as always) on the McDLT.

  10. Mark Wolff says:

    Longoria…gonna heat up big time starting tonight

  11. Luby says:

    I’m going with Carlos Pena, I like to think he gets hot for this series.

  12. KillaTapes says:

    Big Game James. Psyched that this is back!

  13. Kevin says:


  14. Brixology says:

    BJ. I think I have now picked him well over a thousand times in a row with no winners. He’s due.

  15. Brett says:

    Back with longo

  17. Beth says:

    Shields. Because if he’s not outstanding, they will lose.

  18. Michael says:


  19. Martin B says:

    I’ll agree with Charles, if I win again, move my prize down. I got my t-shirts today. Super excited. I’m going to the afternoon game against KC with my office and I plan on wearing the Zobrist one. And since we’re in the Checkers area, I’m hoping to get Grant Balfour to sign my daughter.

    Tonight I’ll go with Shields.
