Rays Your Voice: Can Wander win Rookie of the Year?

It’s not called Most Valuable Rookie.

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Tampa Bay Rays Mike Watters-USA TODAY Sports

On this week’s episode of Rays Your Voice, I’m joined by the hosts of another Rays podcast, Kevin Weiss and Ulises Sambrano, who lead Locked on Rays. We talk about the origins of our Rays fandom, and at the end, they share some of their most controversial baseball opinions.

In the meat and potatoes of the episode, we debate who should walk away with the American League Rookie of the Year award. Although Adolis Garcia and Randy Arozarena may end the season with more WAR than all other AL Rookies, are either of them THE Rookie of the Year? Maybe not.

In the second half, who do you think poses the worst matchup for the Rays in the ALDS, and who would you be most comfortable with them playing? There’s a good chance the Wild Card game will take place between two teams from the AL East, setting up countless storylines as they try to advance and knock off the reigning League Champions.
