Listen: Saint Pete, Baseball, Rays discussed on Sports To The Max with Mike Max
"Bump quote. It's disappointing. I understand the business side of it. The rays have the right under the CBA to renew me at or near the league minimum salary. They also have the ability to more adequately compensate me as as other teams have done with players have similar achievements to mind, and quote inner out the raise not giving Snell a more significant race at the winning the Cy Young is it around what he got out in inbounds BT, first of all I kind of. His first year. He did nothing. The second year area was up around four over so wins the Cy Young in a very unique. Obviously circumstances they had down there with Kevin cash their their head coach share their skip trying to figure out ways to bullpen their way to victory is actually what night gave they did a good job by look at this because the razor team that just financially can't compete in the concurrent major league baseball environment. And we talk about this. This this player wage deflation that's been happening around major league baseball. Some teams are doing it because they're cheap. Other teams are doing it because it's necessary. Stuart Sternberg who is the principal owner of the Tampa Bay rays has talked about this for years. They can't make money in Saint Pete did financially not viable and his primary. Primary objective is to get them financially stable before they do anything before they move. They're moving at some point. I hope it's relatively soon because this is a bad financial model. You get great players potentially. Great players. He's not great yet, potentially. Great players, pretty great. Let me see him do it again. And I think that's what the raise the point is do it again. And then we'll have concerts. But I'm just looking at it from a business standpoint. It's completely imbalance. I get it. I get why you have to do this. Okay. I obviously disagree. My answer is out of bounds to me. There's a big difference between leverage."
