Gary was, is , and will always be a must read for me. While I don’t always agree with his views on the Rays and our methods, I take them to heart as a part of our decision making process. I wish him well in this new endeavor. There is not a better observationalist (if that is even a word) writer sports today.

Over the last 19 years, I have really enjoyed reading Gary Shelton's columns. Whether I was coaching the Bucs or simply following the team from a distance, I've enjoyed his style. He has a great knack for telling a story. But more than anything else, I've enjoyed two things. Gary was always informative and honest. If he was writing about my team, he always took the time to make sure he got the details right. As a coach, or as a fan, that's what you want.

Gary Shelton is terrific. I'll read anything he writes, about sports or anything else.

I love reading Gary Shelton. He's one of the most knowledgable and entertaining sports columnists in the country.
