There’s been lots of talk about the future of the Tampa Bay Rays, a awesome team that no one seems to love.
Well, at least one writer says they are not long for this world. Mike Ozanian of Forbes writes that other MLB owners have told him the team won’t last past the 2014 season, and will be contracted due to lack of support.
Granted, 2014 is a long time from now and maybe, just maybe, Tampa can find a way to get them an agreement on a new stadium.
But with no fan support and no new city willing to take them on, the franchise that has won the AL East twice in the last three years, could disappear forever … leaving owner Stuart Sternberg free to take over another franchise in need of some leadership.
