After being named an AL Manager of the Year finalist for a third consecutive season, the Tampa Bay Rays skipper Kevin Cash finally received the honor many felt he was due on Tuesday.
I’ve heard both sides of the discussion, and I have finally come around to accept the decision, although I will say Cash did make a costly error: he called upon Nick Anderson instead of Diego Castillo or Ryan Thompson.
For the third consecutive year, Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash has been recognized as a finalist for the AL Manager of the year.
Unfortunately for a front office tasked with adding to the young core which won 96 games in 2019, the Rays will likely be without VP of baseball operations Chaim Bloom, who will be coronated as Boston’s head of baseball operations.
Daniel Robertson, Brandon Lowe, and Kevin Kiermaier arrived in Tampa Bay Rays camp on Thursday and Friday (respectively), as 61 of 66 players are now present.
