Re: Reds done in Sarasota?
I doubt that the Reds are as close to folding up the tent in Sarasota as John Allen wants the Sarasotans to think. Unless there's something simmering in Arizona that we don't know about, there is no Plan B here.
Since a chunk of the stadium funding is coming from the state, the Guv won't make any friends around his state by having cities compete against each other to reel in a team with the promise of state funding to the victor. At the same time, I don't think the Reds will walk away from a deal that has so many dollars that aren't theirs on the table. This is mostly about the team fighting over how many of its dollars will go on that table.
