(AUDIO) Kevin Kennedy Says It’s Tough for the Rays to Compete for a World Series with Their Payroll and Stadium

Kevin Kennedy 10-9

Former MLB manager Kevin Kennedy joined Booger and Rich to wrap up the Tampa Bay Rays 2013 season.

Kennedy said that the Rays are one of the stronger organization and they shouldn’t be too happy about getting knocked out in the ALDS, especially when you consider that your ace David Price lost in Boston and you come back home and lose in 4 games.

Jeremy Hellickson needs to resurrect his delivery according to Kennedy. The hitter see the ball too easily coming out of his delivery. Kennedy said that he was surprised that Chris Archer wasn’t chosen to start in Game 4 over Hellickson. Kennedy said you like your starter to set the tone and it was evident that the Rays would struggle to take control of the game.

Even after the loss, Kennedy said that Joe Maddon is still a great manager and has the odds stacked against him with such a low payroll. Maddon has to mix and match his lineups and Maddon does a good job with what he’s given.

Kennedy says that it’s tough for the Rays to get to the next level of winning a championship without a higher payroll and a new stadium.
