Joe Maddon Enjoys Intellectual Process With Rays

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon doesn’t allow the fiscal restraint that the organization has to operate within weigh him down.  In fact he seems to enjoy it saying,  “I embrace the intellectual process that we [Rays] have to go through in order to be good to me is very exciting. To not just have an open locker of money to buy what you need is o.k.” – listen to the rest.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
