Not that I think they're leaving the Trop anytime soon-just curious on everyone else's opinion.

Tampa's a good town for baseball, but people aren't going to drive that long, to get to a crappy area of St. Pete, to a crappy stadium to watch 1/81 games on a consistent basis.
It would be a start. Better sightlines, better seating, better amenities, and better chances at corporate sponsorship which is huge. They'd be able to add significant amounts of sale-worthy real estate there in the stadium.

That and putting more than 19% of people within a 30 minute drive is always a massive help.

Good, hes **** and so is his attitude.

Clark is an interesting reclamation project with a chance to get Stocker regular playing time and see what hes got.
