Carney on WDAE: Wander’s Debut Was Nearly Perfect

St. Pete Nine 95.3 WDAE

Every Wednesday afternoon, I join The Pat & Aaron Show to discuss all things Rays.

This week’s interview focused on Tuesday night’s debut of Wander Franco.  I give you my two most impressive moments of Wander’s first day in the big leagues (and neither of them were his game tying three-run homer), plus what I think it will take for the 20-year-old to give the Rays the opportunity to sign him to one of those team-friendly long term deals.
