Charlie Manuel announced that Ryan Madson will start the seventh inning tonight in Game 5 of the World Series.

"He's got experience, and a couple of years ago he was a starter," Manuel said. "He's been throwing the ball real good. I think from a mindset he also knows that, we've just got three innings of baseball for our bullpen to pitch."

A reporter asked Manuel about the Rays being a team of destiny based on what happened in Game 5 on Monday. Manuel had a great response.

"I wouldn't trade positions," he said. "So I guess I feel like I have an advantage. That's kind of how I look at it. Destiny is one thing, but if they're destined, we want to definitely fight through destiny."
