Yesterday, the “C” word was in the news because some lazy writer at Forbes regurgitated some lazy rumor about the Rays.
There is a lot of good analysis on the web explaining all the reasons the Rays are not going to get contracted. If you like, I will link to it.
I just refuse to spend any more time in this space obsessing about the club’s financial health (they made some money last year), the market, the fan base’s loyalty, or the likelihood that the Rays will remain the Tampa Bay Rays for a long time.
Do not worry about posturing principals and their mouthpieces. This IS a baseball town.
