Something has to change with the Rays, that's obvious.

But apparently it won't be in the form of some major shake-up, like for instance a coach getting fired.

Joe Maddon is stressing he is confident with the group he has. That's according to Rays beat writer Marc Topkin, who on Tuesday told the Sports Page that fans shouldn't look for anything like that.

"Joe Maddon said yesterday this is the group of players they're going to have, these are the best players that are available right now in the Tampa Bay organization," Topkin said. "The coaching staff's doing a wonderful job. So I don't sense any reason to think there will be any changes."

Here is the full interview from Tuesday, with the referenced portion at the very end.
