Trade Deadline Talk And “Pie In The Sky” Proposals

We are a week away from baseball’s trade deadline, and Steve Carney gets into the three different aspects he feels the Rays front office should be looking to try and improve for the push toward the postseason (1:01). He then gets into the names that would be tremendous splashes if Tampa Bay was able to acquire them, including what he would be willing to offer the Washington Nationals in order to land this year’s whale: outfielder Juan Soto (21:05), what pieces the rest of the American League East could be looking at for the deadline, including which team could be a surprise seller (33:00), and finally which players he would prefer seeing the Rays front office pursue (40:34).
