No need for @RaysBaseball to make budget cuts next year. TV money will give them 80 million in revenue. A 25 mil raise from this seasonThis blog has been citing for years the team's impending TV revenue windfall after the 2016 season, but apparently, the dollars could come even sooner.

In addition to exploding cable dollars, a new TV contract could also give the Rays the chance to sell all 162 games, rather than the current 154 they have on local television.
