"Keep the Rays in St. Pete" Group Forms

It got a little lost in the shuffle last week, but a new grass-roots group has formed with the purpose of keeping the Rays where they are: "Keep the Rays in St. Pete."

It fulfills another Stadium Saga prediction made three years ago: "Grass-root efforts will pop up. Fan groups - on both sides of the bay - will start rallying the troops."

Of course, it's been two and a half years since a similar group began campaigning for the Rays to move to Tampa. And there was another group, "Save Our Rays," which said it also wanted to see a Tampa stadium. However, that group seemed more interested in selling T-shirts than selling fans on a new stadium.

  1. My question is this:
    With all these idiots lining up to ignore contracts and shower money for an unnecessary stadium, what groups are there that are formed to oppose any new robbery for the Rays?

    Is the save our waterfront group still around?
