TBO: Trop Flop Brings Hillsborough Hunt

The devil is always lost in the details.

But broadening the hunt at this point — 22 months after St. Petersburg allowed the Rays to search for a new home away from Tropicana Field — can only be seen as a step backward for an effort many hoped would have been wrapped up by now.

Hagan once expressed optimism he could announce Tampa’s preferred stadium location at the start of 2017. Now it’s unclear if anything will be formalized by the end of this year.

The window for the Rays search closes in January 2019. Rays spokeswoman Rafaela Amador declined to comment.
