Possible Tampa Bay-Montreal Split Caused Uproar On Twitter Among Fans


It was an interesting Thursday for the Tampa Bay Rays after ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported the team was granted permission to “explore becoming a two-team city,” splitting time between St. Petersburg, Fla. and Montreal.

But it was a short-lived thought, as mayor of St. Petersburg Rick Kriseman reportedly said he won’t allow the Rays to talk to Montreal about such a possibility.

Even though the Rays becoming a team split between two cities may not happen, it still caused Twitter to do its thing, with many angry Major League Baseball fans and writers questioning the decision.

Take a look at some of the best tweets:
