Winning, Working, And A Sense Of Normalcy

I’m sure you celebrated the Rays first spring win this week, which came after a full week of losing. Steve Carney explains why numbers — whether on the scoreboard or on the stat sheet — don’t matter at this point, and discusses what you should be looking for. We also get into the latest injury to reliever Pete Fairbanks and unfair blame being levied on the club. You get to meet the newest member of the Rays, outfielder Harold Ramirez and hear from catcher Mike Zunino about Cy Young winners’ work ethics as we got back in the clubhouse for the first time in over two years!
