Tough series, as they lose 2 of 3 from Miami...

You folks might be interested in a new development just out today. My co-worker informed me of this, but there is now a new plan (in renderings) for the Rays' new ballpark in the Ybor section near downtown Tampa.

New stadium to cost $900 million with only 28,000 seats. Spokesperson said there were 1.6 million people in the area. There are NO parking lots included in the plan and the area has only 2000 parking spaces in existing parking garages.

Wrong:


The ballpark will have 4,400 parking spaces in the first quarter-mile (about a 5-minute walk) and about 10,000 parking spaces within a 10-minute walk. A 1,000-space parking garage also would be constructed.


That's more than enough to accommodate every fan in a 30,000 seat arena. It's also about 10,000 more parking paces than Fenway has. Assuming they've built a 3000 car garage since the last time I was in Boston....

Probably the only team that won't at least split a series with the Mets these days is the Nationals.

Ha, but so sadly (for the Nats) true. Heard some Nats fans at my job beginning to express some concern about the team now...

Back on topic...

I saw that. I do wonder if they will get this done at some point. I do think it would be good for the team, and since Ybor is supposed to be the spot, maybe this will be good all around.

Despite the departure of the former brain trust, the Rays have remained a smart team. One indication of that is thirdbase. Matt Duffy was acquired from the Giants in exchange for Matt Moore. Moore spent two years in SF getting paid 12 million bucks and compiling a 5.12 ERA. He has now moved on to Texas where he is even worse. Duffy has been paid a total of about two million dollars for his three years with the Rays.

With Duffy gone, the Giants had a hole at thirdbase and filled it by trading four players to the Rays in order to get the 32 year old Evan Longoria. Duffy is batting .316/.370/.414 (787 OPS) while Longoria, before going on the DL, was batting .246/.278/434 for SF. Duffy has 1.9 WAR, Longoria 0.2. Longoria is making 12 million dollars more this season than Duffy.

Duffy did miss all of 2017 for what its worth. Today was his 100th game for the Ray's. Still a smart pickup.
