06/25 16:05 CDT Rays owner says shared season with Montreal is best option Rays owner says shared season with Montreal is best option By MARK DIDTLER Associated Press ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) --- The principal owner of the Rays says it's unrealistic for his team to play full time in the Tampa Bay area, and a shared season with Montreal is the best option. Stu Sternberg said at a news conference Tuesday he would be "hard-pressed" for the team to stay exclusively in Tampa or St. Petersburg. He believes "strongly in the sister-city concept" with Montreal and is "asking for open minds." Tampa Bay is averaging less than 15,000 fans a game. Commissioner Rob Manfred says the Rays have "broad permission to explore what's available." An agreement between the Rays and St. Petersburg for Tropicana Field runs through 2027. St. Petersburg's mayor has shot down the two-city possibility. The Expos left Montreal after the 2004 season and became the Washington Nationals. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
