So much for any thoughts of an easy resolution for the Rays' stadium issue.

St. Petersburg Bill Foster has told the city council in a memo that he believes a deal to get the team a new home may be on the fritz.

"It has become apparent to me that Major League Baseball has no intention of assisting the city and Rays in reaching a mutually beneficial solution," Foster's memo read. "Nor does Major League Baseball seem interested in a cooperative effort to keep the Rays in the Tampa Bay Region for the long term."

Mark Puente of the Tampa Bay Times has more details.
