Talking Rays With Fangraphs “Beat The Shift” Podcast

Friday, I joined Ariel Cohen, the host of Fangraph’s “Beat The Shift” Podcast to discuss all things Rays.

We began with a discussion of the return of fans and the retention of a number of rules from the shortened 2020 campaign.  We then get into the Rays, about who has been the team’s MVP through the first two months of the season, how will Kevin Cash handle the closer situation, and will Wander Franco or Vidal Brujan get called up first.
