Then the new owner immediately moves the team to a more profitable area.

It makes good business sense. The ballpark is probably the biggest drag to a potential buyer. So you minimize the internal costs of ownership to drive down the out of pocket investment in the new digs. City picks up the rest of the tab and viola!

MLB franchise with a brand new stadium in a trendy neighborhood and low overhead.

It's like eating baloney sandwiches while remodeling the kitchen before selling the house.

Any funding that comes from not the ownership group will assuredly have a “can’t sell before” date like the Marlins did. And thanks to the Marlins selling literally the first chance they got, I imagine it will be significantly longer.

I think I could root for a 161-game losing streak. Would make this season interesting at least.

Rays are tied with the Reds in MLB with only one win after eight games.

Not surprisingly, the Devil Eggs have already been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.

Culverhouse LIVES!!!

What a disgrace.

PLEASE move to Montreal.

A guess on Monday night's ACTUAL attendance at the Rays/Rangers game (as I'm sure ownership will make announced attendance figure look better than actually is).

I'll go with 3,600. It's going to be ugly. The Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp will probably have higher attendance numbers than both Marlins and Rays most of this year.

Anyone paying attention to that Japanese guy for the Angels?? What a start to a season!!!

He's like a 6'5" Ichiro w/ power. That happens to also throws 98mph w/ a nasty splitter.

I play in a quasi rotisserie league where you draft two teams (1 NL, 1AL). I have had the Rays for four years and it was okay ..
this year I almost didn't want to play at all due to the Raylessness of Croc, but figured why not.

The guy before me drafted Tampa, and I went iwth the Chicago White Sox.

I am not sorry ..
