The 8:00 AM hour begins with the one and only Doug Waechter in the studio on The Pat & Aaron Show. It begins with Aaron realizing that Doug Waechter and Rich Hollenberg are both not live at Tropicana Field during the away games. Doug Waechter goes on to say that Josh Lowe has really impressed him and is a 5-tool player! Doug proceeds to explain how great the pitching has been so far for the Tampa Bay Rays, and that he is not surprised by it. Doug also says that the rhythm of the game has improved since they added a pitch clock, and that it's different than where the game was a year ago. Then Aaron says that when Tyler Glasnow comes back, that it'll be one of the best rotations in all of baseball.
