I am not complaining about DC getting a team; I think they are a better location right now than any other. I am disgusted that they are going to pay for a new stadium 100% with public money.

Snippets:
Washington is calling baseball's bluff over the relocation of the Montreal Expos.


City officials have prepared a new plan they say offers Major League Baseball exactly what it has requested -- 100 percent public financing for a new ballpark if the Expos are moved to the nation's capital.


"It is by far the best proposal that the city could have come up with," Fred Malek, head of a potential ownership group who has worked closely with the city, said Friday. "It's aggressive. It meets the needs and requests of Major League Baseball. It's got the support of the mayor as well as key members of the city council."

Tje specualtion here is that they are actually calling MLB's bluff. In other word they know that the offer will be rejected and think that when it is refused it will become politically feasible to drop it.

I personllly think that the Orioles will not let a team in. If we were going to get a team it would have occured ages ago.

If I ever had local channels around here I'd be excited to see more baseball come near.. hint hint Dish.

Then again, I could shell out more moolah for MLBEI.. Maybe by the time the expos move in, locals will be here.
