Rays fan Dick Vitale blasts team over split-season proposition

Tampa Bay Rays superfan Dick Vitale is not at all happy with the team over the split-season concept they have floated.

The Rays last week went public with the idea they are considering having two homes and playing half a season in the Tampa area and the other half in Montreal.

Vitale, who has been a longtime Rays fan, ripped the team on Twitter Tuesday over the idea.

Part of the Rays’ proposal includes the Tampa area giving them a new stadium that is open air because the team would only play there the first half of the season. Such a stadium would be cheaper to build than a dome or retractable roof, which is why it was suggested. But Vitale is not a fan of that idea, nor the concept as a whole.

While the Rays have had major attendance issues and need a change, this is a reminder that a plan like the one proposed might not resolve things so much as agitate it further.
