Massive Marlins Firesale & Rays Impact - Sternberg Reacts

It's too early to call it a post-mortem on the Marlins' firesale and its effect on the Rays, but after a week's worth of reactions, Roger Mooney from the Tampa Tribune recapped it all in this morning's paper. Aside from the brilliance of The Biz of Baseball's Maury Brown, the article stood out for including a tiny bit of reaction from Rays owner Stuart Sternberg: baseball writer and MLB Network insider Jon Heyman, after a brief chat with Sternberg last Thursday at the Owners Meetings in Chicago, tweeted, "He knows Miami situation won't help his cause."

Sternberg, when asked Thursday about the Marlins situation by a reporter from the New York Times, said, "You can't sustain success as a small-market team. You do the best you can."
