Domination In NY, Stadium Talk, And The Monthly Mailbag

It was a good weekend to be a Rays fan, as they finish a three-game sweep of the New York Yankees in the Bronx beating three different pitchers in three different fashions.

Steve Carney also gives you his take on Rays ownership’s address of the St. Petersburg City Council and why he’s not a fan of the split-city proposal.

Then we turn to your questions as the monthly mailbag contains queries about Yoshi Tsutsugo’s future, the young potential starters waiting their turn, and Brandon Lowe’s spot in the batting order.

Catch Steve three times a week on 95.3 WDAE talking Rays:

• Beckles & Recher – Mondays at 4 pm
• Pat & Aaron – Wednesdays at 12:30 pm
• Ronnie & TKras – Fridays at 7:30 am
