Diamondbacks CEO: We might bolt Chase if not upgraded

I’ve had it with this type of baloney. The teams don’t need taxpayer money. Ever.

The county refused the team’s request in a letter Wednesday, saying taxpayers built the facility with $238 million in sales taxes. The letter also states the team, according to its contract with the county, is prohibited from trying to move until 2024.

Kriseman’s proposal would allow Rays to look at possible stadium sites | TBO.com and The Tampa Tribune

Sure it is.

Mayor Rick Kriseman sent the city council another agreement with the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday in an attempt to determine whether the team stays in the city or leaves.

The new proposal adds a few twists to Kriseman’s original proposal, which would have cost the team up to $24 million to leave Tropicana Field before its lease with the city expires in 2027.

Kriseman called the deal beneficial to “taxpayers, baseball fans, and to those seeking the clarity necessary to invest in our city and our downtown,” on his Facebook page.
