- Team officials met again with Hillsborough and Tampa officials Friday...and apparently decided selling more tickets to corporations would be a good idea.
- The Braves continue to meet with officials & developers in Sarasota County regarding a new spring training home, but conveniently - they got all sides to sign confidentiality agreements to control the dissemination of information, thus we don't know how Sarasota will pay for the stadium. The Blue Jays have a similar confidentiality agreement with the city of Dunedin; the trend isn't very good for taxpayers.
- The Rays' Chris Archer didn't hear back from President Obama regarding his Havana dinner offer, so he reached out to First Lady Michelle Obama. All fun and games, right? Except for the fact that Archer's marketing value stands to gain a few million dollars from the international exposure a photo op with the Obamas would bring.
- Tomorrow's Rays exhibition in Cuba will likely draw a crowd upwards of 55,000...so just go ahead and make your Rays-to-Havana stadium jokes now.
Actually, an exhibition crowd of 55,000 qualifies you for a new MLB franchise now...right Montreal fans???
