Rays Triple Play: A Wil and a way to camp despite snowstorm

Published:

OPTION NO. 2

Wil Myers’ flight from Charlotte, N.C., to Tampa on Friday was canceled because of a snowstorm. Rather than try to find another flight, the Tampa Bay Rays’ outfielder rented a Kia from Enterprise — “The small one,” he said. “Very small.” — and drove straight through to Tampa, stopping only twice during the 10-hour drive.

HE SAID IT

“It could take a half hour.”

— Rays manager Joe Maddon on how long a mound meeting between C Ryan Hanigan, a philosophy major at Rollins College, and RHP Chris Archer, a deep thinker, will last this season.
