Joe Maddon spoke of the value of having a guy like Grant Balfour as his closer….yes, he has said they are going to use the “c” word this season. He also spoke of the roster depth all the way around and how it will benefit the Rays immensely over the course of 162 games.

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.
