    With Grapefruit League games starting up, Steve Carney looks back on the workout portion of Spring Training with the signings of Amed Rosario and Yu Chang, then gets into the possibility of further upgrades from outside the organization before Opening Day. Finally, he looks at the fans who for some reason still can't get past Game 6 of the 2020 World Series and tries to give perspective to those stuck reliving a moment three and a half years old.

    A First Look At 2024

    A First Look At 2024

    Happy New Year from Under The Orange Roof!

    Steve Carney returns to start 2024 with a first look at the legal proceedings against shortstop Wander Franco that are now getting underway in the Dominican Republic. We take a look at what sort of scenarios could play out, and how that affects the team's massive contract with the 22-year-old.

    We then get into the sillyness that local politicans have staked their names to regarding the construction of a new baseball stadium for the team to play in beginning in the 2028 season, plus take a look at the construction of the current roster, and some names that the team could be looking at, including a former Ray that Steve thinks could be a win-win scenario for everyone involved.
