Disappointed Rays will need time to assess plans
Two things were immediately clear in the Rays season wrap-up media session Monday:
One, that they were disappointed in failing to hold on to the playoff spot they held into August and missing the playoffs while finishing 80-82.
"If we begin to start accepting 80 (wins) or something that's not good enough, I don't know where we're going," manager Kevin Cash said.
Two, that they have a lot of decisions to make but, with the season ending Sunday, they will need some time to talk through it.
"I think it's fair to say all of us will take some time in the upcoming day and assess quite a bit and start forming some opinions and plans to continue to work to improve,"" Cash said.
