MLB gives Rays greenlight to potentially split season between Burg and Montreal

Inside Tropicana Field

The Tampa Bay Rays saga continues. Today, ESPN reported that the MLB gave the OK to the Tampa Bay rays to explore options in Canada, at least on a part-time basis.

A schedule split between St. Pete and Montreal, does that make the team Snow Birds?

There’s an emphasis on part-time here. The Rays are locked into playing the state of Florida through the 2027 season. The team hopes that a split schedule could help the overall profitability of the club.

Of course, the idea itself may be a pipe dream for the team. Mayor Rick Kriseman took to social media and said he had no intention of bringing such an idea before City Council to consider.

What do you think? Should the Rays be allowed to split the season between Florida and Canada? Let us know in the comments.
