Former Tampa Bay Ray Fred McGriff stopped by the Fan Cave at Ferg’s to talk about Opening Day and what it means to both players and fans alike.

McGriff said even now Opening Day is special. Players who have bad Spring Trainings look forward to the start of the season because they know that regardless of how Spring went, they can get back on track.

To McGriff, Evan Longoria is still the most important player on this Rays team. He said as long as he’s healthy, he will hit you 30 HR’s and helps protect hitters infront of and behind him.

Crime Dog said he’s excited to watch what David Price can do. All offseason there were trade rumors and the fact that the Rays like Price to pitch to deep could be an issue. McGriff pointed out that if the manager comes out in the 6th inning and asks price how he’s doing, he may just bow out early to avoid injury.
