[Update] Tom Krasniqi reports (via Twitter) that Sternberg will read a 4-5 minute statement and will not take questions…Much of the speculation is now centered around idea of Sternberg giving a deadline for a new stadium.
[Update] Noah Pranksy’s sources are telling him that the announcement will be stadium-related, but “won’t be earth-shattering”…Well, that was fun for about 10 minutes. [Twitter]
[4:37pm] The Rays just announced that Stuart Sternberg will make “an important announcement regarding the future of the Rays franchise,” Monday at 12:15pm.
Well, that sounds both exciting and ominous. Let’s start the guessing at “new stadium plans” or “Stu has had enough of this crap and wants out.”
Any chance it is just a coincidence that this announcement comes an hour after the Rays fall out of first-place for the first time all season? Yeah, we didn’t think so either.
