Will City Council Vote Send The Rays Packing?

The St. Petersburg City Council voted down a proposal to let the Tampa Bay Rays scout around Hillsborough County for a new ballpark site. The likely effect of the vote is the sale of the team by current owner Stu Sternberg and a move to another city. This is probably the best news possible for the franchise—stuck in a Rube Goldberg-like joke of a stadium with equally dumb fans. There are several worthy options for the Rays, all of which would do a much better job of supporting what is a solid baseball organization.
