Time running out for officials to reach stadium deal with Rays

Less than two months remain until the window closes on the three-year agreement that the city of St. Petersburg gave the Tampa Bay Rays to explore stadium options in Tampa.

But the team and elected leaders have yet to publicly reveal how the community would help pay almost $900 million to move the team to a new ballpark in Ybor City.

The Tampa Bay Amazons would be a better name than the Tampa Bay Rays.

I hate that headline ... if the city wants to waste $900 M, they'd better hurry!

All threads are OTP now.

I blame Obama.

Tampa Bay Amazons

If Gal Gadot is the team mascot, I am buying season tickets.
