Extra bases

CHICAGO -- Following the Rays' 4-2 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday night, 10 Rays rookies dressed in 1970s Jane Fonda-style workout clothes and danced a routine to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" in front of Fenway Park's Green Monster.

Stephen Vogt was among the group and offered his critique.

"Most attractive, hands down, Chris Archer," Vogt said. "He was scary good. He's a good-looking man, so therefore he's a good-looking woman. Most into it dancer would be Alex Cobb. He definitely stole the show."

But according to Vogt, Desmond Jennings, who is not a rookie, but had to dress up for his third consecutive year, provided the highlight of the routine.

"The moment of the dance was Desmond Jennings' back flip," Vogt said. "The shear athleticism, in a leotard, to be able to pull that off."

Jennings said he didn't remember the last time he had done a back flip.

"I used to do it all the time when I was younger," said Jennings, who obviously remembered that he had been forced to dress for a third consecutive year then added: "... Hope I don't have to do it again."
