Carney On WDAE: Rays Have Wanted Cruz For A While

St. Pete Nine 95.3 WDAE

Every Monday, I join Beckles & Recher on Sports Radio 95.3 WDAE to discuss all things Rays.

This week, we discuss the acquisition of designated hitter Nelson Cruz from the Minneota Twins, and what it means from both a batting a defensive standpoint.  We also go through a number of pitching trade possibilities, including why I think it’s unlikely that Max Scherzer could be coming to Tampa Bay, and look forward to the most important homestand of the season.
