Rays Joe Maddon Not Ducking Expectations In 2014

Rays Expected To Win AL East

Joe Maddon will not duck the high expectations that have been set for his ballclub. He loves expectations because it means something good is going on.

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.
