WHO IT BENEFITS: In Orlando, Aaron Deslatte wrote the deal will be "especially sweet" for the Astros and Blue Jays, who are "both seeking to build a new ballpark in Palm Beach County or move to Arizona." The Astros would "get incentives to the tune of an extra $10 million over about 37 years to move from Kissimmee to Palm Beach Gardens." Both teams said that the new state aid would "make it possible" to stay in Florida (ORLANDOSENTINEL.com, 4/22).
