Stadium Hot Stove Odds & Ends

Any news is good news to new stadium proponents in Tampa Bay, so when Pinellas Commissioner Ken Welch tweeted that a meeting had been set up with the Rays, joy broke out in Mudville.

It was later reported the meeting will take place Jan. 29 in an attempt to bring the team, the county, and the City of St. Pete all to the same table for some meaningful discussions.

Meanwhile, Rays president Matt Silverman closed on a $1.5 million mansion in Northeast St. Pete earlier this month.  Don't try to read between the lines of this one - one of the league's top executives simply spotted a good investment, much like he's been doing on the field for years.

And finally, check out this read from Grantland, where Marlins fans continue to rail against ownership, even on a team Facebook post about a charity toy giveaway: "They had promised Xbox games for the kids. But Loria traded the games to Toronto for some hula hoops and old candy."
