Blake Snell Kept Indians Hitless Till 7th Inning in His 19th Win

Blake Snell made his case even stronger with Wednesday’s game against Indians at Tropicana Field. He proved he no doubt is the best pitcher American League has to offer when he kept the Indians with no run as far as to seven innings in Rays 3-1 win.

Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “He was just outstanding, really a strong start.”

Terry Francona, Indians manager added: “Oh man, he’s got the whole package. He’s got velocity. Breaking ball. Changeup. Just seeing how much he’s developed from one year to the next, that’s somewhat special.”

The Rays are at 9-2 from the start of September which includes 2 out of 3 wins against the Cleveland Indians who hold the AL Central lead. Meanwhile, they have extended to 66-36 with only 17 games left, Rays made the move to be eight games behind Oakland for second wild card spot in AL.

Snell is been in the CY Young Awards conversations lately, being a  strong candidate for it he even held Indians at bay till seven straight innings but then Jose Ramirez hit a leadoff homer to end his streak in the seventh. With that been said, Matt Garza remains the only pitcher to throw a no-hitter in Rays History.

Snell admitted he knows he was in for a no-hitter but he says his main focus is on winning. On the other hand, he is extremely optimistic regarding his pitch to Ramirez, he said, “I’ll look at the video to see what I could have done differently, but I like how I pitched to him.”

All in all, he still won his 19th win of the season, in which he allowed one run on one hit and two walks whereas struck out nine in seven innings. During that time he his ERA Dropped to 2.03 from 2.06.

Though the Snell has a big hand in this win he obviously was not alone. Ji-Man Choi hit a two-run homer to aid his teammate in the first inning off starter Carlos Carrasco of Indians and Kevin Kiermaier added to it by hitting a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning which top the Rays with a 3-0 lead.

“Every at-bat where you can hit a home run, you feel great,” said Choi expressing his feelings on his two-run homer “Especially, when helping toward a win for Snell. He’s aiming for the Cy Young Award, so I hope he gets it at the end of the season. I feel great in how I helped bring him the win.”

He has hit three home runs in his last five games and all of them with bases loaded though his first four home runs with Rays were solo shots. He is been hitting .333/.424/.679.

“I know that we are winning and that’s the most important thing. That’s what I’m focused on, that’s what we are focused on. All the individual stuff, I’ll look at later.”  Said Snell expressing his feelings on the 19th win.

Rays will be starting a three-game series with A’s on Friday at Tropicana Filed at 7:10 PM and Diego Castillo will be starting for them. He also started on Monday in which he pitched two innings allowing only one run.

Blue Jays 10-3 Win Broke the Winning Streak Of Tampa Bay Rays

There were two home runs from CF Kevin Kiermaier and C Nick Cuiffo made his first appearance as a big-league player a huge hit and RHP Jake Faria was fabulous in his return to major leagues.

But what is more important is that the Rays reminded that they are not always going to win every single game they play much to our disappointment and that getting back at the race for the second place in AL East can also be hard on them.

This was the impression they gave through the Wednesday’s game against Blue Jays when they had to face a dreadful 10-3 lose. Rays gave up seven runs in the top of the first inning and were never able to recover after that.

Though they have been great in their early 13 wins out of 15 while they went rock-hard against Atlanta, Cleveland and Toronto, what brings us back to reality is that this loss left them at 75-64 with the 23 games left they have already dropped eight games back.

Kiermaier who had to sit out on Sunday due to a sore back has been doing well swinging the balls. He tried his best to put a good end to an otherwise ruined and disappointing game of the season. The homers he made were his fifth and sixth and he was just about to make another when RF Randal Grichuk made a leaping catch at the wall eventually giving him a .367 average over his past 14 games.

“It’s not going to be easy,” Kiermaier said. “We have to do a lot of things right and hope a couple other teams falter down the stretch. It’s one of those things we know we’re not going to win every game from here on out. It’s just not how this game works.

“Probably the highlight of the night,” manager Kevin Cash said. “KK, he’s got the potential to get really hot. I’m not saying he’s going to. But I think that’s a huge step in the right direction, this series (6-for-10, four extra-base hits) was.”

Ciuffo reached on an infield single. Faria worked three innings in his first action since Aug. 15.

“Tonight just wasn’t our night,” Kiermaier said at another point.

Definitely not for RHP Tyler Glasnow, who allowed the seven runs at the beginning of the first inning that put Rays in this giant pit. Still, The Rays’ are still in process of discovering Tyler Glasnow.

Up till now, they have seen him playing his best while he put up a strong fight against Indians ace Corey Kluber for a total of seven astounding innings in which he allowed only two hits and a run.

Then it brings us to now, where he played worse than anybody could have expected of him when he miserably played out the first inning against the Blue Jays allowing five hits, two walks, and seven runs.

Galsnow has a powerful strategy he calls a slider, featuring an upper 90s fastball along with a big curve put into a harder version. But back to this game the 25-year-old admitted he thought he was ready against jays.

“When you’re pitching, you have to eliminate everything you can’t control,” he said. “I know it’s cliche, but when I’m out there, I’m only thinking about getting the guy out who’s up at-bat at that time.”

The Rays and Brave Will Be Facing Each Other Again Tonight for Their Second Game

 

The two-game series is about to end soon as Rays and Braves meet again tonight in Atlanta.

Tonight’s game will decide where the Braves Fall if they managed to win this game their lead will increase and with Phillies Loss and their win, braves will move in a bit father in their lead in NL East.

On the other hands, Rays have been quietly making their place in AL East strengthening their offense but they are up against Sean Newcomb this time and he has already shut down their offense once back in May.

Squaring him off will be Diego Castillo the Rays’ opener, he was doing fine posting a record of 3-2 with a 3.23 ERA but from the looks of Wednesday Night’s game, he might have a tough time coping with Newcomb.

On Wednesday he took the mound when Rays were three-run ahead of the   Braves and practically pushed it all in well by allowing a couple of two-out singles and a home run. Fortunately, Rays Offense was strong enough to turn the tables once again and they lead the game with an 8-5 win against the leading team in NL East.

“We’re getting a lot of contributions, a lot of good at-bats,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “We’ve got some guys from that Boston series that have carried over. Guys have done a good job, they’ve had quality at-bats.”

With this win in their record Rays moved to 71-62, gaining their 9th consecutive win in a total of 10 games. They are one game shy of equaling their highest wins in four season playing with Kevin Cash as their manager. The Thursday is off for the team and is going to be opening a weekend series with the AL Central’s leading Indians on coming Friday.

There are many prominent names who made hits a great deal in a game which had too many phases the names include Joey Wendle, Carlos Gomez, Willy Adames and Tommy Pham

“The offense as a whole (was) kind of piecing it together, doing some little things with the bunts and moving guys over and getting some big home runs,” Cash said.

Cron is of view that the offense showcases their team efforts.

“We’ve been swinging the bats well and you can tell we’ve been clicking,” he said.

Castillo played for two innings in the game and then Jalen Beeks took the mound and covered three innings. It was his fourth win giving his typical performance in the game with 26 strikeouts in total 49 pitches.

“He was okay,” Cash said. “Strike-throwing was a bit of a struggle.”

The game had started 41 minutes late owing to the rain and again interrupted in the middle of the sixth inning while Rays had secured a lead of 8-3.

When the game continued, the Rays decided to use Chaz Roe and Adam Kolarek to start the eighth inning. After which Andrew Kittredge wavered and allowed two runs and left the mound with 2 additional to Atlanta Braves. Then Jose Alvarado took the lead in the eighth inning and made it to the ninth inning for his sixth save.

“He’s gaining more and more confidence,” Cash said.

Tampa Bay Rays Stood Victorious with One Run against Kansas City Royals

The Tampa Bay Rays added another victory to their shutout record on Monday night making history. Ryan Yarbrough helped in extending this record to 23 innings against Kansas City Royals.

The only run was scored by Willy Adames, the Dominican professional baseball infielder of the Rays. The run was discovered through a video replay of the game.

“They shut out the best team in the league yesterday so that tells you how good they’re doing now,” said Willy Adames.

Tampa Bay Rays have started their record-breaking streak with 14 shutout innings against Boston Red Sox and an addition of 2-0 win over them this Sunday. The franchise stands at 27 consecutive scoreless innings record which was set in 2013.

Five and a quarter innings were pitched by Rays’ Ryan Yarbrough (12-5) in a relief of Rays opening pitcher Hunter Wood.  He gave up 2 hits and a walk and struck out 6 which earned him his 10th relief win of his major league career.

At first, Yarbrough was a long man out of the bullpen while Tampa Bay Rays took to experiment using relievers for starting the games for one or two innings. Yarbrough has a leading record of 96 relives in major league baseball and has earned a 3.84 ERA.

“It’s something that you see another guy doing really well, and … we’re all competitive by nature or we wouldn’t be here,” Yarbrough said. “We just want to go out there and do the same, if not better. A little friendly competition in the clubhouse never hurts.”

After Yarbrough Ryne Stanek went in and pitched eight innings without giving up any run and then Jose Alvarado pitched for his fifth save in the ninth inning.

Ji-Man Choi and Kevin Kiermaier hit singles in the second inning and the Adames hit a two-out dicer off to the third base, meanwhile, he shattered Rosell Herrera’s attempt at throw making a run that took around 43-minutes of review to reverse the original out call.

“Usually the run you score in the second inning doesn’t define the game. It was pretty unusual,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “It just shows we had to play seven innings of perfect baseball.”

The run was made against right-hander pitcher Jorge Lopez, he had pitched five innings that concludes his second Major League start. He gave up 5 hits along with 3 walks.

This contributes to the fourth loss Royals faced by Tampa Bay Rays with one run and the 9th overall shutout during this season. They didn’t stand much chance to go farther than the third base with Rays on Monday’s night Game.

“The pitching was fantastic. We just couldn’t muster any offense,” Royals manager Ned Yost said.

Kiermaier hit three of the eight hits of Tampa Bay Rays in August batting .127

In other updates of Tampa Bay Rays, it is been reported that second-baseman Daniel Robertson has had a successful surgery and a torn ligament in his left thumb has been fixed he says he suffered no pain now. He hopes to recover fully in time to hit a few bats at the end of the season, he said, “There won’t be any rushing it”.

Vidal Nuno after recovering from his strained right hamstring will be making his comeback with his rehab start on Tuesday.

Yankees Attempts at loading basses in the 9th inning failed and Rays lead (3-1), Thursday’s Game

In the last of the three game-series, Tampa Bay Rays made the 3-1 lead on Yankees. Ray’s Rookie Adam Kolarek sure made a fine show of his pitches in the ninth inning loaded with bases. No one has ever struck out like he did in a situation like this (with Bases loaded) at least not in the minor league.

When he walked out of the stadium victorious he felt a sense of proud in his conduct.

”It just hasn’t been at this level,” he said. ”And certainly not in a stadium like Yankee Stadium.”

Kolarek managed his career’s first save in the middle of a life-threatening plight on Thursday and made Rays overcome the Yankees with 3-1 in their own Yankees Stadium it’s a first since 2014. Since the ballpark opened in 2009, Rays have been making a record out of their 12 consecutive losses in game series in the Bronx.

”This can be an intimidating, daunting place to play,” Kevin Cash, Rays’ manager said. ”But I don’t think these guys really concern themselves with that too much.”

After Sergio Romo started struggling through the ninth inning allowing singles to Didi Gregorius and Gleyber Torres (Torres was out after a short while due to an error made by him) and walking Neil Walker on four pitches, Rays’ Left-hander Kolarek came in to save the day, striking out Greg Bird in his first pitch, Bird had hit the ball in the foul territory. After this, the 29-year-old struck out both Brett Gardner and Austin Romine, Romine through a fastball speeding 95 mph.

”Getting Bird out on that first pitch was huge,” Kolarek said. ”Because once you get one out, you’re like, ‘OK, I’m one pitch away.’ To get the strikeouts was just a little bit more special.”

Tommy Pham had also returned after his recovery from a right foot fracture and helped Rays facing Masahiro Tanaka hitting an RBI double then Blake Snell and all the others took care of everything else.

It was Snell’s third start after recovering from DL with left shoulder fatigue. During this period he has struck out five players with only two balls hit. He threw 76 Pitches on Thursday.

Pham was on DL still when he heard about the game in Yankee Stadium and begged manager Kevin Cash to let him be in the lineup and played his first ever game in Yankees Stadium.

The Rays opened the game with Tanaka with four straight hits. Mallex Smith hit a single, stole second, then scored against Joey Wendle’s double and after Jake Bauers single Pham finally got his chance and he struck a double off the wall to the left field. Then he added a single in the third and then hit a drive in the left-center field to the warning track which was caught by Aaron Hicks leading to the sixth inning.

Bauers held Smith against David Robertson during the eighth inning his bunt gave no chance to Robertson to play at the plate as it was hugged by the first-base line.

The game was worth seeing adding to another victory of the Rays against Yankees. The Rays have now tumbled over Yankees in three series leading Rays to (62-59) and Yankees adding to another lose in (75-46) with their chances to hold a wild-card spot crumbling.

Tampa Bay Rays Beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-4 on Thursday Night

One-run games have long since been a tradition at Tampa Bay Rays grounds and there is no stopping it. Once again Tampa Bay Rays tied this record by beating Baltimore Orioles 5-4 on Thursday night in their final game of the series against them. It was the sixth consecutive one-run game for the Tampa Bay Rays Franchise.

“Hopefully we’re looking at that as a positive,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “We’ve got to find ways to separate some games. But, if you’re in a lot of one-run games, that means in you’re in a lot of baseball games.”

This time around Jake Bauers made two-run single between two of his runs in the seventh inning off Cody Carroll (0-1) to earn this victory for his team.

“Obviously the wins and losses aren’t there in the past six games here, but we’ve been in every ball game,” said first baseman Jake Bauers, “I think that’s been the key for us.”

Then it was Yonny Chirinos turn and unfortunately, he allowed a solo homer from Renato Nunez earlier in the seventh giving a 4-3 lead to Orioles. Chirinos allowed one run with three hits with trucking out four. He completed five innings to make his first major league conquest.

“Hopefully there’s many more to come after this one,” Chirinos said through a translator.

Jake Bauers had good things to say for him too.

“That’s awesome,” Bauers said. “Hard-fought for him.”

After that Sergio Romo took the mound, who struck out Renato Nunez and made his 14th save.

“Yonny was outstanding,” manager Kevin Cash said. “That’s two back-to-back outings where he’s been very efficient. … And then (Jose) Alvarado (scoreless eighth) and Sergio (scoreless ninth) do their thing.”

Let’s face it Baltimore Orioles has the worst record in AL-East standing at 35-80, but the start of the game looked like there was a victory waiting for them after so many losses but then the fate took on another turn and by the end named the victory to Tampa Bay Rays (58-57).

Going forward Matt Duffy got his first chance of an extra base in almost 24 games, he nailed an RBI double off David Hess in the third inning when Ji-Man Choi hit a solo homer in the fourth inning that made the game 3-2. And then Bauers sacrifice fly tied the game making it 3-3.

After the Nunez, leading homer in the seventh Jake Bauers sense the need and hit off with his career’s ninth go-ahead hit and then smacking the pitches one after another to make this game a 5-4 win for Tampa Bay Rays. The game was outstandingly looked like a tug-war and was one of the most amazing ones seen in Tropicana Field with a crowd more than 10,000 present at the stadium.

“Obviously it would have been easy to get jumpy and jump on something,” Bauers said. “But I tried to put a good swing on something and luckily I got a line drive.”

Tyler Glasnow debuted With 5 Strikeouts In A 7-2 Win Against Angels

On the Wednesday night against Angles Rays pulled out their newest asset and barged on Angles, Tyler Glasnow was acquired in a trade on Tuesday that involved sending Chris Archer to the Pirates. However, Glasnow proved that he was totally worth it. In his debut game with Rays, he went ahead with such magnificent energy and that made the crowd go wild with cheers.

The game started with striking out David Fletcher with a fantastic K, A 97-mph four-seamer on the inside corner for strike three. Kole Calhoun came out next and made a shot into the Rays tank that gave a 1-0 lead to Angeles, then Mike Trout reached out the base, but that is not the end of the story. Glasnow took care of that too, he took good care of Trout on his attempt to steal third departing from the mound with 5 strikeouts in 3 innings and a walk.

 

“Fastball, curveball, slider today, I had a good feel for things,” Glasnow said following the Rays’ 7-2 win. “I felt relaxed out there. Overall, the feel in this clubhouse is really good. It’s relaxed, it’s friendly.”

Even the opponents could not sit still to see his job-well-done:

“He’s got a big arm,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “He made some good pitches and did what they needed him to do. He got the game to a certain point, and then they came in and did a good job. He’s got a big arm, no doubt.”

Obviously, this debut was no match to any debut ever made by any MLB Player in History. Also, this means a lot for the future of the Rays and from the looks of it, I’m sure the futures looking good. Let’s see what’s manager Kevin Cash’s take on that:

“Probably not going to [throw 70 percent strikes] all of the time,” Cash said. “But a great start. If he’s featuring that kind of stuff at a 70 percent clip in the zone, he’s going to have a special career.”

Probably, but still, Glasnow is good for rays, I hope this way they can let go of the disappointment of trading Chris Archer.

After Glasnow, Jake Faria took the mound in the 4th inning and immediately struck out Trout. After getting back from DL it was his first time getting on with action. After that Angeles took a 2-0 lead with singles from Pujols and Andrelton Simmons.

Then Tommy Pham led the second half of the 4th which ended with 0-3 with a walk a run and an HBP on ribs. Then Willy Adames hit a hard base to the left to tied things up.

And that’s not it, rays weren’t satisfied with just that continuing the game Mallex Smith got a triple out into the LCF gap giving Rays a 3-2 lead. Then the 4th home run of the year from Willy made it more of a great game to see and Rays went up to a 4-2 lead. After an RBI Single from Matt Duffy, Jake Bauers made a pretty good shot, his 9th homer of the season then Jose Alvarado closed things up.

The game was worth it, All the Rays were in full form and had done a great job leading them to a 7-2 win over Angels.

“A lot of the same guys turning it over and getting big, timely hits when we need them,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said.

The Tampa Bay Rays Major Trades: Nathan Eovaldi For LHP Jalen Beeks & Matt Andriese For catcher Michael Perez Plus RHP Brian Shaffer

The Tampa Bay Rays have been busy making some major trading deals with Boston Red Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks. On Wednesday Morning, the Rays traded Nathan Eovaldi in exchange for the LHP Jalen Beeks.

“I knew I was on the trading block,” Eovaldi said. “I guess my initial reaction when they first said I got traded, I was like oh because I feel like I’ve developed such a relationship with all the guys here, and all the opportunity that the Rays gave me to come back and recover from my surgery….But then again when they said it was Boston I can’t help but be excited about that. First place in our division, that says a lot. … Really excited about going over there and helping that team.”

Eovaldi has pitched fine since recovering after his injuries, he was getting ready for the game and was unaware that a deal concerning him was in action. Then he was called by manager Kevin Cash around 10:30 and was informed that he got traded.

“I was just about ready to start getting ready for the start when he called me in,” Eovaldi said. “Everything is kind of swirling right now.”

Beeks in one of the finest trade prospect for Tampa Bay Rays, since his major league debut in June with Red Sox he is been giving outstanding performances in all of his games. He is now 34-28, 3.63 in 96 Games from which he started in 94 games.

After this deal, everyone was thinking that’s it when Rays Landed another bomb on our heads with another big deal marking Matt Andriese. They traded Matt Andriese in the afternoon of the same day getting catcher Michael Perez and RHP Brian Shaffer in exchange from Arizona Diamondbacks.

Andriese has a record of 3-4, 4.07 ERA in 27 games and been doing a lot better as a starter a 4.28 ERA. He has learned a lot and he says that he appreciates the time he has spent with the Rays.

“I’m thankful for the opportunities the Tampa Bay Rays gave me to become a well-rounded pitcher,” he said via text. “And for the friendships, I built with my teammates, the coaching staff, clubhouse guys and front office.” Get your Tampa Bay Rays tickets discount coupon and must watch their match live.

25 years old catcher Michael Perez, the Diamondbacks draft pick in 2011 seems like the key deal for the Rays as he has been recently listed as the best defensive catcher by Baseball America. This season his record looks something like this a .284/.342/.417 line in Triple-A Reno and a 38.4% caught stealing record. Furthermore, he has hit six home runs and 29 RBI in 58 games for Triple-A Reno.

The Pitcher Brian Shaffer, on the other hand, is only 21 years old and has a record of 7-5 with a 2.70 ERA. He has played at the University of Maryland with Rays minor league prospect Brandon Lowe before being picked by the Diamondbacks in the last season in the 6th round of amateur picks.

Rays fans are looking forward to upcoming games for the performances by new additions in the team.

Tampa Bay Rays: It’s Time To Move Ahead

Considering Rays most recent increase in losses and injuries it is better for Tampa Bay Rays to think of the future now.

Tampa Bay Rays although are better at their hometown games they need a  lot of work when they face their opponents on their grounds. They stand at a 49-47, with 26-17 at home and 23-30 when they are away, that obviously can get better with time but maybe that time is now. they need to think fast and do what they need to do now.

The Team is in a transition period and working its way up but still, there are teams in American League that are doing a lot better than them namely Red Sox and Yankees.

Through recent rumors and outcomes drawn from Rays recent performances, we have come up with a few suggestions that might come in handy in forming the team in a better way.

First of Chris Archer needs to go, though he doesn.t becomes a free agent till 2020, the soon to be 30 years old player has given enough years to rays already. it’s time when rays should consider him for a trade. They may not get that good alternative against him but still can do a lot better.

Besides there have been some signs that suggest Archer himself wants to be traded, for example during an interview when he was asked if he was the rays organization where would he see Chris Archer, his reply was something like this:

“If I’m an organization, I would want to keep me, but that’s the thing, other organizations would like to have me, too,” he said. “I don’t know why (they’d trade me). I signed a contract that is extremely affordable, especially for what I provide. Outside of being out for six weeks, take away the win-loss and stuff like that, and I cover 200 innings. I can help influence any young pitcher and player, I like hanging out with our position players, too.

“At the same time, Manny Machado, five players just came back (to the Orioles from the Dodgers) for two months of service. I’m sure it’s enticing because they could get more, but if I’m an organization, I would want to keep me.”

The words “other organizations would like to have me, too,” didn’t go unnoticed.

Other than that, Another One of players Rays have that was fit to be traded and had the potential to bring in a great trading deal is Wilson Ramos; however, he is on a DL List after his hamstring injury. Now it’s time to change direction and look to extend his contract. That will be best for the team. Also, the player seems to want to stay to in one of his recent comments he said:

“They know how to play this game. So, I’m very happy with this team. We are [competitive]. We’ve made a couple of mistakes. It happens in the game when you are young. I’m 100 percent sure this team will be good soon.”

As the rays have all the young players in their pitching staff it is better to have the security of a well-experienced pitcher like Wilson Ramos to stay on the team.

Tampa Bay Rays Planning For A Future Ballpark Stadium in Ybor City

On Tuesday Night, The Tampa Bay Rays revealed a visionary plan of a $900 million Ballpark near Ybor City. The plans for the stadium outlay is ready, though it is a small stadium for the Major league Baseball Stadium Standards with an estimate of approximately 30,842 seats, but has the visuals are great. With a roof completely made-up of glass and a full domed shaped stadium is expected to take 5 to 6 years in completion and will be placed across Ybor city.

“I think you’re looking at a four-to-five-year buildup, 36 months on the construction side,” said Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn. “Will we live or die based on whether we have this stadium? No. We’re going to be fine with or without it, but I would love to have it.”

The Rays owner, Stuart Sternberg regards the plans as “a dramatic break from the past”. He says that the franchise is attempting to make a long-term commitment to the region and this ballpark will act as a major attraction for the city and bring in finance.

“That was the best opportunity to happen here in Tampa, at the center of the Tampa Bay region,” Sternberg said. “We believe that baseball cannot only survive but thrive here in Tampa, and Tampa Bay, and all the growth that comes ahead of us.”

Although the location and infrastructure have been decided there has not been a single announcement regarding who is going to pay for a stadium such as this. The guess is the rays are expecting a big contribution to the stadium from the government. The tax money that should be used for the city’s upbringing is expected to be spent on a million dollars project for the people who already earn millions.

“The test is when people see this,” explained Matt Silverman, the club’s president. “If people are getting behind this vision for how our ballpark can look and see how it can feed into Ybor City, if we’re on the same page there, we have a better shot at figuring out the plans.”

The ray’s chief development officer, Melanie Lenz, has come to an estimate of an $892,429,823 cost on stadium’s construction with 30% spent on only the roof.

The owner, Sternberg of the rays, said that he is expecting to draw a $150 million contribution from the team. The remaining burden comes to the government.

“It’s a step,” The mayor, Buckhorn said of Sternberg’s comment, “A baby step,” he added. “I think the reality is that unless the Rays are able to get to close to half, this will be a very difficult transaction to complete.”

If the Rays could not manage half of the contribution the taxpayers are going to be hooked for the payment. It’s been happening over the years that and Tampa Bay Rays are expecting the same giving it a shape of city’s welfare that’s been seen in history is never the case in these types of scenarios.

Will Ray be able to come to terms with their dream of building a brand-new stadium or not, and if they somehow achieve this goal will this bring any improvement in their performance this we still have to see.
