Selig Talks Rays on Opening Night 2012

According to ESPN's Jayson Stark, Bud Selig sees the Rays heading down the same road as the Marlins. He tweeted:
Selig on whether Rays will open new park any time soon: "Five or 10 years ago, you could make a case this (Marlins Park) would never happen"
He also told that the Rays are "playing in a stadium where they can't make it."

Meanwhile, since Selig seems content with drawing the Rays' situation out into the next 5-10 years, you can keep yourself occupied with fine pieces of journalism like this from the Huffington Post's Ethan Casey.

Casey admits he's bitter that Fenway Park dodged the wrecking ball while his beloved Tigers Stadium could not. As I've written before, both stadiums were considered derelicts 15 years ago (much like the Trop is now), but image is everything and the Red Sox have actually done better than they could have ever imagined without the new digs.
