DRB Podcast Special: Rays acquire Nelson Cruz, instant reaction

Boomstick time.

A fun instant reaction! We did some podding after Blake Snell and Willy Adames were traded, and when Yoshi Tsutsugo was DFA’d. It’s pretty fun to get to do one with the Rays making the first big splash as we near the trade deadline.

I’m joined by Danny Russell and Darby Robinson to talk about the impact Nelson Cruz’s Boomstick will have in the Rays lineup, and what the move means for the Rays trade plans over the next week and a half. As I write this they’ve already made another move, shipping LHP Rich Hill to the New York Mets.

We’ll have plenty more trade deadline content on the DRB Podcast Network, but enjoy this instant reaction to the acquisition of Nelson Cruz that we recorded as the Rays came from behind to beat Cleveland.
