Rays analyst for Sun Sports Brian Anderson called in to give his take on Andrew Friedman heading west for the Dodgers.
BA said that he was shocked when he heard that Friedman was leaving to go to LA. He never thought the band would break up but he’ll be interested to see the domino effect of this move.
Anderson also told us that baseball in Tampa Bay will be ok but the key to maintaining it is building a new stadium. He’s heard that restraints on where they can look have been loosened and the team could soon be able to look at a site outside of St. Pete.
So should Rays fans fear Joe Maddon leaving with Friedman to go to LA?
“Yes,” Anderson told Booger and Ryan. “I know nothing other than I’ve already heard national pundits say you know what? They might as well just go ahead and get this deal done.”
