The Rays have announced the two-year options on the contracts for radio voices Dave Wills and Andy Freed have been exercised, keeping the boys in the booth through the 2008 season.

Congrats, Dave!

Awesome for Dave - Congratulations. :bandance:

****ty for us. :(:

During the White Sox series I listened to Dave Wills. I like his announcing - they keep the games humorous (which one must when covering the Devil Rays) and he had a few tidbits about the White Sox as well. :D:

Great for Dave, although I wish it were with the Sox. His extension is proof that good things happen to good people.

Thanks for the kind words... I still keep up on the goings on with the White Sox thanks to WSI and XM Radio and TV's Extra Innings package... I believe the White Sox will make the playoffs and look forward to coming back to Chicago for a few playoff games!!!

See a lot of you in late August too!!! :gulp: :gulp: :gulp:

congrats to Andy Freed as well who was the Pawtucket announcer before going to Tampa. They both call a good game.

Maybe Wills and Singleton will be included in the Crawford trade. :dunno:


Is this the beginning of a sign and trade, Bump?:smile:



Congrats :cheers:

Total kudos on showing some tact in the way you said that. That's the classy way to do it.
