Love how they continue to ignore the glaringly obvious solution of moving to Tampa and instead are just gonna build a fancy new stadium and think everyone will come even though the commute will still be hell
"@raysbaseball has a year-over-year increase of 29.1%, (attendance) which is among the top half-dozen improvements in MLB in 2023. At their current pace, the Rays will finish with their best annual attendance in 10 years."
In today’s episode of how NOT to run a professional sports team. Rays primary problem: awful attendance. Rays “wise” solution: new stadium in the same area that’s unattractive and inaccessible to 95% of their fan base.
IMO the best part of the Rays stadium saga being over is that MLB can stop hanging cities over our head (wasn’t going to happen) — and now focus on bringing expansion teams to places like Nashville, Portland, etc.. #RaysUp
