Kevin Cash is tired of questions about Rays' payroll

  Kevin Cash is tired of questions about Rays' payroll Those associated with the Rays are often asked how they manage to maintain their level of success despite the lack of spending. It’s a question that manager Kevin Cash has had enough of. “The question gets old, because the results have been there,” Cash said, via Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. “It p-sses me off when people ask that.”The Rays are certainly more willing to employ certain approaches than other teams have been. They have consistently traded star players for strong returns instead of handing out big long-term deals to their best players.

The Atlanta Braves hold a 1-0 series lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS after a memorable Game 1 win. Following the contest, the Talking Chop Podcast reconvened to discuss everything that transpired.

The history of the Braves’ ‘Chop,’ and the damage it causes today .
The Braves’ ‘Chop’ carries a legacy of past and present damage.The debate will reach a fevered pitch on Friday night with Atlanta set to host Game 2 of the World Series. The team, and MLB commissioner Rob Manfred are firmly behind supporting the use of “The Chop” despite pressure around baseball and beyond, so now we take a look at this history, the criticism and the evidence of why the tradition needs to be a relic of the past.
