As reported in the Tampa Bay Times, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred has spoken out about the Tampa Bay Rays commitment and framework of a new stadium deal planned for Ybor City.

From The Tampa Bay Times:

"Manfred, in a strongly worded letter sent today, said the framework of the deal lacks specific details necessary for him to "understand the merits and feasibility" of the proposal as well as "the actual level of commitment" from the public side.

Further, Manfred addressed the looming deadline in the three-year window to let St. Petersburg officials know if they will find a new home in Tampa, writing he was "puzzled by the decision to inject me publicly in the process" with only weeks remaining."
