Joe Maddon and Andrew Friedman met with the media today on the eve of spring training.
They will have the usual talking points (“we have a chance to be very good”). But more importantly, the presser produced two amazing photos.
Here is the scene and it appears that Maddon didn’t have very far to go as that is his $300,000 RV in the background (via the Rays). If you are curious what that thing looks like inside, we posted some photos last year at this link.
And here is a close-up of Maddon and Friedman. This is such a “Rays Way” scene. How many other teams are just setting up shot with a couple of bar tables in the sun and the manager in shorts and the GM in shades? This is why we love this team so much.
