Joe is back with his postgame thoughts….
Ah, brooms. What a sight, what a game, what a win, what a series.
The opening month is a hellish minefield for the Rays. To get a series sweep, especially over AL West power Los Angeles/Anaheim, is damned impressive.
So is Andrew Friedman. A week after picking up Brandon Allen off the scrap heap, the guy has been a major impact already, highlighted by his two-run blast to right for the game-winner today, bailing out a tough-luck Matt Moore who was on the hook for a loss despite pitching well.
Shoot, it seems like a different player steps up big for the Rays each night. If it isn’t a pitcher shutting down the opposition, it’s a different bat.
That’s the sign of a special team.
