According to THT, this is a matchup of the two worst team defenses in the AL, and two of the three worst defenses in the Majors (God bless you, Florida Marlins). At a staggeringly bad 136 plays below average, the D'Rays have cost themselves nigh ten wins or so with bad glovework alone. Bandbox ballparks aren't the only thing that keeps pitchers up late at night.
Also, congratulations to Adam Jones, who's big home run last night earned him one of the best spectator seats in the house.
