DEVIL RAYS HAVE FALLEN BEHIND DIAMONDBACKS AS TEAMS EXPAND

     Devil Rays Managing General Partner Vince Naimoli said the
team is building the basis for a solid organization, but he
admits the team is behind on its original schedule, according to
the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES.  The Devil Rays have fallen behind the
Diamondbacks who already have a GM, a scouting director, a top
marketing official and about twice the staff of the Rays.
Naimoli: "I would say Arizona is definitely ahead of us right now
from those aspects.  We have the advantage of having the better
part of the stadium completed.  I think we can bring all the
human elements into focus fairly quickly" (Marc Topkin, ST. PETE
TIMES, 7/11).
