Bright Spots On A Rocky Weekend, Orestes Talks Yoshi

It was a roller coaster of a weekend for the Tampa Bay Rays, and Steve Carney discusses how the team saw two long streaks get snapped against the Toronto Blue Jays, but also got a positive glimpse of the future.

Bally Sports Sun analyst Orestes Destrade also visits the show for the first time, as he and Steve talk about the feeling of fans being at the ballpark, what Joey Wendle has done to become a focal part of the offense, and just how much more patience the team can have with Yoshi Tsutsugo.
