As an Expos fan of long standing, I’d like to remind you that Major League Baseball ran the Expos into the ground for the last several years. It was supposed to be operating a major-league franchise and did a halfassed job, because it couldn’t risk alienating the “real” clubs from all over the country, which it was really representing.
That’s the perfect history for a team moving to D.C., no? “Fuck Bud Selig, fuck Jeffrey Loria!”
