The Tampa Bay Times lead story this morning is about a proposal for a new home for the Tampa Bay Rays that would be located in the Gateway/Carillon area of St. Pete.
It's all quite interesting, and we look forward to seeing if anything comes out of it. Considering that both the Tampa Tribune and the Times have published numerous breathless articles over the past three years of similar tales (especially the Times), we'll wait and see if anything happens.
