Carney On WDAE: Timeline For New Stadium, Lockout

St. Pete Nine 95.3 WDAE

Tuesday, I joined Ronnie and TKras on Sports Radio 95.3 WDAE to talk all things Rays.

With the “sister-city concept” officially in the rear-view mirror for the team, the Rays must now look to try and determine if a full-time stadium in the area is a viable solution for the team’s long-term future.  I talked with the guys about what I think could be in the future for Rays fans politically and financially, plus what sort of timeline is needed for that to happen.  We also get into the lockout as well, and how another day of negotiations doesn’t mean the end is near, but is still a good sign.
