Bud Selig went on Sirius XM yesterday and had some troubling words to say about the Rays struggle to get a new stadium, which we think they still want. But really, who knows at this point…

“I like Stu Sternberg a lot, as you probably know…I, too, am concerned about their attendance. I track attendance every day. He knows it. I’ve talked to him a lot. They are a wonderful organization, produced a terrific team this year and finished last in the American League in attendance. I’ll let you draw your own conclusion. That’s bad…[Selig then asked if stadium situation is a "lost cause"]…I can’t answer that yet but I’m usually an optimist and I don’t have any reason to be too optimistic.”

    I know you try to keep it clean here, Prof, but Selig can kiss my ass. I am so damn tired of their agenda portraying us as terrible fans.

    My point is why can’t Stu say something contrary to Selig, why can’t he say, “I know what my colleagues and what the Commissioner’s Office may think of the Tampa/St. Petersburg/West Central Florida area, but I am committed to make things work here. Do not regard the quotes or comments that other pundits or owners may have, as long as I am the owner of the team, the team will stay here, it won’t be tenuous or conditional.”

    Stu won’t do that, another source of my anger at him.
