Carney On WDAE: Freeman Sweepstakes Getting Thinner

St. Pete Nine 95.3 WDAE

Wednesday, I joined Ronnie Lane and Zac Blobner on Ronnie & TKras on Sports Radio 95.3 WDAE to discuss all things Rays.

We start with the topic everyone seems to be infatuated with: could the Rays actually land first baseman Freddie Freeman?  I break down how so many of the team originally connected to Freeman have fallen away, and just a couple of teams remain, including Tampa Bay.

We also get into the role Corey Kluber could play with the pitching staff this year, and which outfielder is the most likely to be dealt before the start of the season.
