#Rays meet w/#Pinellas Commissioners quietly; @codonnellTBO reports still "a long way to go": http://t.co/K8FK0GObYGThe Tribune's Chris O'Donnell reports lobbyist records show the Rays are quietly meeting behind-the-scenes with Pinellas County Commissioners...but the commissioners interviewed seemed to think the two sides were still a ways off from announcing a deal.

I checked again to see if St. Pete Mayor Rick Kriseman or city legal staff had any draft drawn up yet, but I'm told no public documents exist yet on negotiations. Read into that what you will.
But Kriseman's Chief of Staff, Kevin King, tells O'Donnell the mayor is "determined to meet his self-imposed end-of-year deadline to announce a deal."
