More P.R. for Vince Man

"There's nothing more aggravating or disappointing than ownership that's not committed to its team. I recently read that [Devil Rays managing general partner Vince] Naimoli can afford his team's payroll just from revenue sharing, the luxury tax and other things. Essentially, he's paid his team before he even sells one ticket. Is it surprising that he chooses not to reinvest that money in his club if he can sit back and accept checks from George Steinbrenner and John Henry? It's not fair to fans."
