Ugh, I don't want to rehash this argument again, but let's also bear in mind that at the same time, the Sox were also strongly considering moving to Tropicana Field in Tampa, as well, which as it turns out, would have been a complete and utter fiasco, as well. The Rays have been one of the better teams in baseball for several years now and yet they continue to flirt with the Indians and Marlins at the bottom of the per game attendance barrel. Just a few things to think about before we start proclaiming that the Sox really knew what they were talking about when they threatened to move the team anywhere from Bridgeport (and wound up landing a sweet deal from the state to pay for it all).
