Much like the Rays after 11 days on the road, Steve Carney is back to discuss what happened on the last jaunt through Toronto, Boston and Cincinnati. He starts with the announcement of Shane McClanahan being named to the American League All-Star team (1:01), and what he believes the likelihood is of him getting to be the starting pitcher for this year’s Midsummer Classic. He then gets into the last road trip, breaking the time away into three sections, and the significant injuries the club has run into as we get ready to roll into the All-Star break (3:06). That all leads to our first discussion of the year regarding the August 2 trade deadline, and the sort of players that could be available for teams looking to buy (15:30). And we wrap up with the possibility of Tampa Bay maybe making moves that put them in a selling situations, including the possibility of moving one of the players that could bring them a large return (20:15)
