Not just Luke Maile.
And here are some people with less excited faces. Steve Kinsella of Sports Talk Florida posted video from the Rays clubhouse and field, with Kevins Kiermaier and Cash as well as Evan Longoria talking about the day’s training session, KK’s “speech” before the team, and the upcoming season.
- Michael Lortz with a proposal that the Rays swap spring training facilities with the Braves, moving from Port Charlotte to Orlando.
- The Rays chose to go with Logan Morrison again. Mark Topkin gets into why.
- And Bill Chastain wrote about Logan Morrison being loud.
- The Rays Radio feature from yesterday was on Ryan Brett.
- Steve Martano looked at five pitchers recovering from Tommy John surgery, including Alex Cobb.
- Travis Sawchik called Kevin Kiermaier a breakout candidate.
- PECOTA, once again, thinks the Rays are a decent baseball team. Behind a pay wall, Patrick Dubuque considers the projection. Spoiler: projection systems look at individual pieces, not overall past team performance.
- Get psyched for the WBC.
