Well, damn, it's about time. Tropicana Field was a disaster and always had been.  Maybe they'll change the name to the Ybor City Rays or something.  Why? Because that appears to be the move... or at least the town they are going to.

The Tampa Bay Times has the story:

"After years of speculation and courtship, the Tampa Bay Rays are finally expected to announce Friday that they want to relocate the team to Tampa, according to Hillsborough County Commissioner Ken Hagan. Rays Principal owner Stuart Sternberg will for the first time state publicly that the team’s preferred location for a new ballpark is in Ybor City near the Channel District, the commissioner said.

"This is a major step," said Hagan, who added he was given this news from the team. "I’m hopeful this will continue to build momentum on our effort to bring the Tampa Bay Rays to Ybor."

Good for the Rays.  They need a new start, for them, for their fan base.  Happy for them.
