Mayor Foster rejects Rays' request to explore Hillsborough

by Aaron Giddens
As if we should be shocked, today St. Pete mayor Bill Foster rejected the Rays' request to explore all possible stadium sites in Tampa Bay (specifically those that are in Hillsborough were rejected), TBO.com reports.

The specifics of the deal that Foster rejected would have given St. Pete final say on any potential stadiums, in Pinellas or Hillsborough.

By a result of this decision by Foster, this means the Rays won't discuss with CityScape who proposed a stadium in the Carillon business park area. Why? Because the Rays have said they will not talk specifics of a new stadium there unless they are able to talk to everyone in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.

In the end, this is just another example of the reasons Bill Foster is single-handedly writing the plane ticket for the Rays to move elsewhere. To which I have one word: Idiot.
