Ashley returned from a well earned vacation to find her second favorite team wrapping up the finishing touches on a bizarre March sell-off. Doom is all around us. The Rays offer no relief. Meanwhile Ron Gardenhire and his folksy ways are already beginning to grow on us, to our mild irritation.
- Pre-show gnashing over a devastating series of Rays trades that rocked Ashley’s baseball word.
- What are the Rays doing, is Florida doomed, and can the Tigers profit via Corey Dickerson?
- Gardy is buddies with everyone, while Chris Bosio is full of ideas for his pitching staff.
- J.D. Martinez lands in Boston as expected, while the Padres sign Eric Hosmer to an 8 year deal for some reason. This is followed by much disbelief at what a bizarre offseason this has been and how desperate we are for real, if meaningless, games to begin.
