Tampa, Florida -- Bill Foster believes that Major League Baseball wants out of St. Pete - and even out of Tampa. 

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the outgoing mayor has a negative view about the future of MLB in Tampa saying that he's not convinced that MLB sees Tampa as a sustainable market. He also does not think MLB will want to stay in Pinellas County either. 

Foster says that the Rays principal owner, Stuart Sternberg, wants to make the region work but believes MLB does not see Tampa Bay as a baseball region. 

The baseball problem will soon be over for Foster as Rick Kriseman will take office in January.
