There are only two problems with your baseball cover story (“Keep Off the Grass,” 8/23): It is masochistic and impoverished. The Expos got good talent and a great farm system. The suburbs are loaded with fan base—do you know how many public rec ballfields they have in Fairfax? (Not enough to handle demand!) And this area can now attract a motivated ownership, to keep things competitive. (Listen, kids, you just got to cheer up and have some fun with this, or else go back to writing goth reviews.)
