St.Petersburg (Fla.) City Council made this Thursday a vote giving the Rays legal clearance to study relocation of their stadium sites outside the city, for the first time. It provides the option either to remain in Tampa Bay or move to Montreal or Mexico. These two options provide solace to fans favouring their continuance in Tampa Bay, as well as to those vying for their relocation to new places as above. In this context, Major League Baseball (MLB) commissioner Manfred has favoured Mexico as a possible new place for shifting.
To begin with, Rays are concentrating searching around their close neighbourhoods such as Pinellas and Hillsborough. Next to Tropicana Field, is Tampa Bay a prospective, suitable League market for Rays to play? Rays owner Stuart Sternberg will find this easy to answer as this site will satisfy a section of fans. And, in the event of Rays landing on a suitable site for their stadiums in their vicinity (first option), private and public funds will be raised. If however they find no such place, then, Sternberg has the inevitable option to seek suitable places elsewhere. Automater.org is a perfect gateway for all your games. They also have Jackpot 6000 games to play and have fun.
Rays agreement with St. Petersberg is valid until 2027. But, Thursday’s mandate maintains that they cannot play elsewhere in the region until 2018. It’s OK, in so far as the team will generally get minimum a year’s time to study the market. If, breaking the agreement, Rays move into a new place for the 2018 season, they have to shell out $24 million to St. Petersburg.
Then another question arises. When $24 million is an acceptable compensation for shifting a baseball franchise across the bridge, what should be the compensation when it is shifted to a distant place like Mexico or Montreal (Canada)?
But, the St. Petersberg Mayor Rick Kriseman plans to ensure two things in the interest of the city, when Rays decide to leave: (1) the place is suitably redeveloped, and (2) the Rays give a fair amount to the exchequer while leaving the town.
Meanwhile, Sternberg, a pragmatic man as he is, prefers a place in the present region. He has begun house-hunting which is good news for all stakeholders.

The Oakland Athletics are known to, at times, omit selecting talented players for the team when the players become “expensive” for them. They also normally don’t conclude long term contracts with players. In support, they quote one recent contract which they made with outfielder Coco Crisp. Continued injuries crippled Crisp ending up in his participation to not more than 44 games in 2015. For the A’s, the contract didn’t benefit with the desired results.
Now, Oakland is to decide on a contract extension for Josh Reddick for the upcoming season 2016.
Reddick, a healthy athlete, turning 29 before the season, had a brilliant record in 2015 hitting .272/.333/.449. He appeared in 149 games making big wins, proving high defense in right field. Reddick recalls that he struck out two more times in 149 games in 2015 than what he did in 109 games in 2014. Now, he adds a commitment to become more consistent in 2016.
For entering into a contract with him, A’s made in 2016 an offer of $6.575 for one year by way of avoiding arbitration; but Reddick seems to seek a higher deal for his extension citing his popularity and prowess. Furthermore, he has recently informed John Hickey of Inside Bay Area that he is ever ready for discussions with A’s for clinching his contract. According to him, “Though A’s last year told him that they would do something for arriving at a contract, as yet, nothing has happened. Since arbitration is not contemplated, we’ll probably discuss.” He also hoped to get some contract finalized before the onset of the regular season commencing April, 2016, as every player used to wish for in such scenarios.
As things unfold, two options remain before A’s for dealing with Reddick. The regular season is fast approaching, and, it will be interesting to watch the shape of things coming around.
As the Spring Training is very much round the corner, it’s prudent that we take a look at the performance levels-past and present- of five promising player-stars for the ensuing American League West race season.
1. Yu Darvish, Rangers: Darnish, 29, now recovered from a Tommy John surgery, is in his prime like a powerful punch. Darnish, teaming up with Cole Hamels, Holland, Lewis, Perez and Gonzalez is expected to win great laurels. His earlier feats are: He finished second in the 2013 AL CY Young Award balloting; led the majors in strike-outs and K’s per nine innings, achieving his career-best 209 2/3 innings.
2. Ken Giles, Astros: Giles, 25, gave super performance last season having 87 strike-outs against 25 walks in 70 innings and 69 appearances, earned his third best in the National League, and held hitters to a 569 OPS. Now, with his 96.5 mph fastball, and teaming up with the last year’s effective closer Luke Gregerson, Giles appears poised to make the Astros stronger this season.
3. Tylor Skaggs, Angels: Skagg’s earlier elbow pain and Tommy John surgery didn’t deter him. Fully recovered after strenuous workouts in a gym, this 6-foot-4 player has returned to his original team, D-backs, set to make the Angels a formidable team along with Andrew Heaney. Earlier, Skaggs brilliantly made 5-5 with 86 strikeouts for 30 walks in 113 innings in 18 starts with a 4.30 ERA, aside from bettering in some more career games.
4. Taijuan Walker, Mariners: Since his entry in 2010, Walker has evolved as a powerful front-end starter. For him, getting to the front in counts is important. With a fastball of 93-95 mph to his credit, he is all set to support Felix Hernandez for the team’s win.
5. Ryan Madson, Athletics: Though missing for three seasons because of elbow complaints and surgeries, this 6-foot-6 athlete has staged a spectacular comeback in 2015 as a free agent this time to reset the shattered bullpen. Madson played vital roles in his final session with Phillies in 2011 and in the Royal’s trend-setting bullpen last summer. He is to a good support for John Axford, Doolittle and Rodriguez in the reorganized bullpen.
