Do They Rays Think They Can Reach The Summit?

We’ve reached the final milestone marker for the regular season — Labor Day — and the Rays start their penultimate road trip of the 2021 regular season in Boston.  Steve Carney talks about Tampa Bay getting another shot at Chris Sale and Eduardo Rodriguez after losing to each last week, and the interesting weekend upcoming in Detroit.  Plus, Steve asked a pair of veterans on the team, DH Nelson Cruz and outfielder Kevin Kiermaier, if there’s a moment where a team like this truly believes they win it all.  Their answers might surprise you!
