The "Baseball Tonight Goodyear Express Tour" pulls into Port Charlotte, Fla., where the Tampa Bay Rays are gearing up for the 2013 season. The Rays won 90 games a year ago, but missed out on the postseason in the competitive AL East. Now they'll try and make a move without some key pieces from last year's team, including B.J. Upton, who was traded to the Braves. Can they make the playoffs for the fourth time since 2008? Cast your votes!


Holes in the lineup

B.J. Upton isn't the only big departure from last year's team. "Big Game" James Shields will be taking the mound in Kansas City in 2013.

An expensive Price?

David Price agreed to a one-year deal, avoiding arbitration, but his price tag may soon get too high for Tampa Bay, forcing him out of town.
