PawSox Give "Encouraging" Support For Rhody Bill

The Pawtucket Red Sox issued a statement today that seems to be just supportive enough of proposed legislation to keep the team in Rhode Island—but not supportive enough to close out its Worcester, Massachusetts option. The statement reads as follows: "While we have not yet had a meaningful opportunity to review the language of the legislation and its latest proposal on naming rights, it is encouraging to see the outlines of a potential framework, as we consider the transformative opportunity that this ballpark and surrounding development project offers for downtown Pawtucket and all of Rhode Island." OK, Larry Lucchino, tell us how you really feel. The initial committee votes on the legislative package could happen as early as next week.
