On this week’s Rays Your Voice, I am joined by Bri Gonzalez from Rays the Roof, and Darby Robinson. We discuss the two Rays All-Stars, Mike Zunino and Joey Wendle, and what’s made their seasons so special thus far. We also rattle off some predictions for tonight’s Home Run Derby.
In the second half of the show, we give out some midseason awards, including our most surprising and most disappointing players of the first half. To be fair to Bri, the player she selected for most disappointing was already on a bit of a hot streak when we recorded and then went on to hit three more home runs this weekend after we recorded. And to wrap up the show we each give the Rays a midseason grade and discuss what the expectations are for the rest of the season, both in the AL East and around both leagues.
You’ll notice on our podcast feed two extra episodes from SB Nation: one previewing the All-Star Game and one reviewing the MLB Draft. We’ll talk more about both of those events on next week’s Rays Your Voice, but for now, enjoy those episodes.
