The Tampa Bay Rays are coming off a strong showing in their last road trip, going 5-1 against the Yankees and Royals, and a large part of that credit needs to go to infielder Joey Wendle.

I joined WDAE’s Ronnie and TKras show Friday morning to discuss why Wendle has been so key in the turnaround from the team’s early struggles, what the team could be planning for the pitching staff, and why the Toronto Blue jays are the perfect team to continue this hot streak at home.

Listen to the entire conversation below!
