I'm calling it an overreach because he's lost quite a bit of money recently and probably doesn't have enough liquid capital at this point in time to make a big purchase.

I hope he doesn’t.

Without a salary cap an owner in Tampa must either: lose tons of money to try and be competitive with the big spenders or accept that they will constantly be in a cycle of rebuild for 4-5 years, play for one year, rip the team apart, and try and spend 4-5 years rebuilding again.

Baseball is dying. It set up a financial structure that emphasizes big market - New York, Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles and screws everyone else. The fans from the smaller markets that grew up when their teams could be competitive are dying and young people just aren’t going to waste their time watching a sport where their team can never win.

I donít envision him purchasing the Rays but I could see him possibly investing in the stadium if it made financial sense and helped his redevelopment effort of the old Channelside district.

Vinik is all about $$$, he wonít invest in a loser.

A soccer stadium could achieve most of the same things for a fourth of the cost.

But can soccer give you 81+ home games?

True. Not as many dates in that, but would be more multipurpose, attract international games, etc.

Perhaps this is why he's not investing in the Rays.

Make no mistake, the Rays are making money, they are just doing it in a very sad and fan-irksome way.
