Tribune offers a realistic view on rumor mongering that has taken place the past few months on Rays organziation:
Naimoli: "It could happen as soon as October, if Naimoli decides he's ready to step aside a year early. "
LaMar: "Once Naimoli's situation with Sternberg is settled, LaMar and many members of his staff will be gone. If Naimoli stays, they stay, at least for one more year."
Piniella: "He'll accept a buyout of the $4.4 million he's due in 2006. He'll probably take less than that, just to get away from a situation that started with so much promise when he came home and ended with such disappointment."
Delmon/Young : "The agents, aware that LaMar's days with the club might be numbered, smelled blood and decided the time was right to publicly air their grievances."
