The Rays Are Now The Big Dog In The Yard

It’s been a strange week for the Tampa Bay Rays, who have dealt with the duality of incredibly good play on the field and lots of unwanted drama off of it.  Steve Carney goes into both sides of the equation and laments why even he has had to deal with the off-field issues more than the wins on-field.

And Sports Radio WFAN host Danielle McCartan joins Steve to talk about how the Yankees are reeling after an awful weekend in Detroit and how fans in New York have started to admit that the Rays are the bigger rivalry team for them.  Plus we hear that the pulse of the sports fan in the Big Apple feels the American League East crown will likely run through Tropicana Field.
