Carney On WDAE: Wander Was Coming Win Or Lose

St. Pete Nine 95.3 WDAE

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

This week, we go in-depth into the call up of Wander Franco, and I explain why I don’t think the team’s current six-game losing streak had anything to do with the front office’s decision to bring up the #1 prospect in all of baseball.  We also discuss who will be tasked with filling the innings that were meant for Tyler Glasnow before his elbow injury, and what other moves could be coming for the Rays before the trade deadline at the end of July.
