Rays Stadium Saga: A timeline of this year’s drama

The month of May was a tumultuous one in the Rays stadium saga, resetting allegiances in the politics for a new Rays stadium.

Gone are the days when the Rays leadership refused to attend City Council meetings and only negotiate with St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman. Now it is the City Council that is advocating for the Rays, while Kriseman refuses to meet with the team, all while the front office continues to champion a Sister City concept between Montreal and Tampa.

Oh, and the Rays ownership group is so divided on what’s best for the organization there’s a lawsuit to remove the principal owner.
