* “There’s no plan B right now.” That was the response of Tampa Bay Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg to the question of what the Rays will do if the split-cities, Montreal option doesn’t work out.

And none of this–absent a stunning win over the Crimson Tide–helps Kyle Trask’s Heisman chances.
