Rays hope Cash is the new sound of success

by Gary Shelton on December 5, 2014 · 2 comments

in general, Tampa Bay Rays

As voices go, it is a good one, young, vibrant, passionate. It moves quickly through its answers, the words spilling over each other as the thoughts come out, the enthusiasm obvious as it rolls along.

This is the sound of leadership. There is anticipation in the voice, and confidence. Despite its age, there is not a lot of room for doubt or questions.

This is the voice that will speak quietly early in the morning, as it instructs a young player on a base-running error. This is the voice that will yell at umpires. This is the voice that will tell a clubhouse that it expects a good team to live here. This is a voice that will celebrate in a walk-off win, the voice that will maintain confidence in a slump.

This is Kevin Cash's voice.

It is the new way that the Tampa Bay Rays sound.

Do you think the “Cashy” nickname will follow him here? Or is that too undignified for a Manager – maybe KC (boo Royals) or The Cashman (Too much like Brian?)

I think a guy has a nickname like Cashy because there isn’t a better one available. Maybe “Little Kev?” Or how about this: Cashew. Then he can endorse nuts.
