Florida's quote of the day
"Miami has a slight chance of survival . . . but Tampa Bay is gone."
One theory about the Marlins' latest breakup is that it will have a negative impact on the Rays' efforts to get a new stadium, as government officials and fans will be even less likely to consider any public support.
Keith Olbermann, on his Baseball Nerd blog, says the fallout goes further, that it means the Rays are done not only in St. Petersburg but in Florida and are destined to move.
