STADIUM OR BUST? St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce's baseball task force co-Chair Steve Raymund, whose group is studying the Rays' $450M waterfront stadium proposal, said that "rejecting the plan may be the end" of MLB in St. Petersburg. Raymund said that if St. Petersburg "won't build the Rays a new stadium, some other city will."
