Foster Weary of MLB's "Tricks"

On the same day I posted the annual "New Season, Same Game in Stadium" column, Rays' owner Stu Sternberg upped the ante even more just moments before the first pitch.

"It's imperative that we get this thing moving," Sternberg said, as printed in the St. Petersburg Times. "The can has been kicked down the road and the road is not much longer...but there needs to be some progress...and I think my patience is greater than Major League Baseball's."

The Tampa Tribune writes that Mayor Bill Foster said he was prepared for MLB's "tricks" and that the city has studied the leagues's approach toward stadium-building.

What tricks does he refer to?

The tricks in this blueprint that have helped dozens of teams get billions in public financing.
