Rays skipper Joe Maddon joined Big Dog for his weekly chat about the ball club and coming off a day-off the manager was eager to hit the diamond saying "you are always dying for the day off, and then you get it and you become antsy."

Big Dog and the manager also touched on the use of the cutter and how it is not a pitch that is needed for pitchers to reach the big leagues. Joe said three pitches are needed a fastball, change-up and a breaking pitch, no cutter necessary.
