Sternberg & the Rays Know Exactly How to Get St. Pete's Council On-Board with a Deal

No surprise, the St. Pete council won't yet vote on Mayor Kriseman's revised deal with the Rays.  But when councilmembers actually went on the record today indicating they'd be no vote...there was a new wave of disappointed headlines.

Stu Sternberg released a statement that read:
We appreciate the time and attention that Mayor Kriseman, Chairman Gerdes and the rest of the City Council have dedicated to this issue. We have spent many months working towards an agreement, so it is disappointing not to be able to move forward cooperatively with St. Petersburg. 
Disappointment, sure.  Surprise, no.  Sternberg and the Rays know exactly what it will take to get a deal done:
Are any of those three ideas worth it for the team?  I don't know.  But since they can't make plans to build a stadium in Montreal 13 years out, I'm guessing we'll have plenty of time to figure it out.
