Under The Orange Roof: A First Look At 2024

Happy New Year from Under The Orange Roof!

Steve Carney returns to start 2024 with a first look at the legal proceedings against shortstop Wander Franco that are now getting underway in the Dominican Republic. We take a look at what sort of scenarios could play out, and how that affects the team’s massive contract with the 22-year-old.

We then get into the sillyness that local politicans have staked their names to regarding the construction of a new baseball stadium for the team to play in beginning in the 2028 season, plus take a look at the construction of the current roster, and some names that the team could be looking at, including a former Ray that Steve thinks could be a win-win scenario for everyone involved.

Listen to the newest episode below!
