A 2020 vision of the Tampa Bay Rays

Sports Day Tampa Bay: Times beat writer Marc Topkin looks ahead to the offseason, Rays free agents and the future of the opener.

Tampa Bay Times Rays/baseball beat writer Marc Topkin joins us to break down the Rays’ 96-win season that led to the five-game AL Division Series with the Houston Astros. With only three free agents on the team, the future looks good.

What moves might the Rays look to make in the offseason?

Will they try to resign any of their free agents like Travis d’Arnaud, Avisail Garcia or Eric Sogard?

How will they handle the closer role next year?

Could the Rays move away from the “opener” next year with a bunch of healthy starting pitchers?

And should Kevin Cash win the AL Manager of the Year?
