Just when it looked like the Rays’ stadium situation might turn the corner and get better, Bud Selig is now getting involved.
Just two weeks after St. Pete mayor Bill Foster changed his stance and said he would allow the Rays to look for potential stadium sites in Tampa and Hillborough County, Selig announced today that Major League Baseball will now get involved.
In the midst of Selig and MLB introducing expanded replay, Bob Nightengale of USA Today dropped this nugget on Twitter…
“Bud Selig says MLB now plans to intervene in #Rays stadium dispute calling it troubling”
Of course, we don’t know exactly what “involved” means, but it doesn’t sound good, and will probably involve lots of threats to move the Rays to Walla Walla or someplace else.
