I had heard that Friedman had an ownership stake in the team.

Are the Rays prepared to carry on without him?

No. They are done. Like I told everyone :)

Quite the 'rags to riches' story..........lol. Wonder what he can do with an unlimited budget. Oh, and I agree that this probably doesn't bode well for the Rays at all.

Losing Maddon would be a bigger blow I think.

I disagree.

But losing one, then the other, would be hard for them to recover from.

Unless of course they have a hot shot GM in waiting over there.

Either way, they have a loaded team and system. Whoever takes over will have a grace period.

    • Did most people miss the words elite and controlled in the title? Surprised at how easily so many people said no, when I thought the bullpen was a consensus weakness of this team. I like Kjerstad too and you don't trade him for just anyone. But if you can get a difference making 8th/9th inning guy, who isn't a rental, that seems worth considering. 
    • No problem. Like I said I think Mike is open minded. Big difference obviously from shagging pre game to playing in games. Said Mayo is working on OF behind the scenes.

    • He didn’t cover that. Just said he responded well to the injection. Said in January he felt weird sensation ramping up. He felt like at time he could throw threw it. Credited rest and staff working with him. Build him back slowly in minors.    I enjoy listening to Front Office show and with Sirius app can go back and listen. 
    • I saw he was just put on the IL for a knee sprain. I hope it's not serious.

    • Thanks for sharing! I think Mayo in the OF is a good idea. Westburg is proving himself capable of being an every day option at 3B. 1B is covered for now unless something unexpected happens with Mountcastle. All of the OF prospects are left handed so Mayo would help balance that out.
