STAYING OUT OF IT: In Tampa, Stephen Nohlgren notes Rays Owner Stuart Sternberg and MLB Commissioner Bud Selig on Thursday both said that the league "has no immediate plans to intervene in stadium negotiations between St. Petersburg" and the Rays. Nohlgren notes Selig "expressed impatience in August that the city and the team could not forge an agreement to allow the Rays to explore new stadium sites in Tampa." However, Selig on Thursday at the MLB owners meetings in Orlando "eased off that." He said that "any negotiations right now are 'a club matter'" (TAMPA BAY TIMES, 11/15).
