New owner Stuart Sternberg with new ideas for the Devil Rays

"Sternberg has other ideas that will be implemented quickly. He spoke of building a team with young players that will stay together for years rather than spending money on free agents, of implementing some of the data-driven baseball concepts popular with other teams and publicized in the book Moneyball, of bringing in executives to 'augment' various departments, of looking into changes to make Tropicana Field more fan-friendly."

I actually like the D-Rays team. Their pitching is terrible but they have some great young hitters in Huff, Baldelli and Crawford.
