Meet the Rays

The always entertaining Tampa Bay Times Meet the Rays video series is now posted online at tbtim.es/meettherays. Hear from Chris Archer, Kevin Kiermaier (above), Steven Souza Jr. and Evan Longoria, plus a half-dozen others, and manager Kevin Cash about everything from their favorite shows to binge watch to dream vacation spots to time killers on their phones. Plus, there is a bonus video on just exactly what the other players think of Archer's wild hair.
