An interview with Joe Maddon
Rays manager gets his team ready to try and close out the White Sox
Joe, White Sox had to win three elimination games to get here and that's the position they're in now. How dangerous is a ball club in that spot?MANAGER MADDON: I don't know that the word's dangerous, I just know they're motivated. Every team has won probably more than likely three games in a row during the course of a season, so it happens to everybody. But we can't be focused on that. We're just about one game at a time. We won two very hard fought games at home. We're coming here and I have nothing but the world of respect for this organization, Ozzie and the entire group. A bunch of great veteran players on their team so I know they're going be ready tomorrow. I don't necessarily look at all that other good stuff. It's just how we control what we do. And that's to play our game tomorrow.
