Retiring baseball commissioner Bud Selig said Tuesday the Tampa Bay Rays need a new stadium, but that any future changes are up to team management. (Wikimedia Commons)

I have been a Rays fan for a long time. I have been in this stadium when the Rays lost almost everyRead More game and were not a "popular" team. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Tropicana Field. I personally love attending games there. So sad to see how people keep hating on the Trop. Hoping that the RAYS can maybe upgrade the suites and seats and keep playing there! I see no benefit to moving or building a new stadium anywhere else. For the people who will not drive from Hillsborough County shame on you. I drive and also have season tickets to the LIGHTNING and I just don't understand!

I agree with you Christina. In the middle of summer, you can catch a game at the Trop, which is tempRead More controlled to 72 degrees. Way better than sweating your butt off in another stadium. Some upgrades, sure, but I do not see the correlation between the Trop and low attendance. It takes time for transplants to Tampa Bay to appreciate the local team instead of the one they watched in the town from which they came. Tampa is not the answer...they are Yankee fans and won't attend Rays games in Tampa any more than the Bucs draw.

Parents ruin sports..

Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.

The Rays are in Kansas City this week playing the Royals for a Tuesday thru Thursday 3 game series,Read More not in St. Petersburg... making it impossible for Royals pitcher James Shields to have met with his realtor Tuesday in Clearwater.
