Good news, I'll definately be going!

Westcoasthabsfan 09-09-2013 02:47 PM

First step in baseball returning to Montreal.....

Bobby G 09-09-2013 02:59 PM

Sell them out

There won't be Baseball back in Mtl without a new stadium.

I just don't see a new stadium happening.

I want to disagree but I can't. The only thing that can happen is us getting a team back under condition of a stadium being built and having the team at the Big O for a year max 2

Pumps me up I might even take a road trip up from Newfoundland to see this

"Ligue des pamplemousses" match

Really :|

We deserve more than that.

It has to be sold out people. This is NOT about watching a game....it's about sending a message. I will be there for sure. So not only selling everything, but fast as well. Come on people.

Inkling 09-09-2013 04:18 PM

I will come down from Ottawa to watch one of them if only for nostalgia reasons. Even though the Big Owe was a horrible place to experience baseball I still have lots of great memories watching the 'Spos there. I'm glad we get at least one NL team.

You're right... but I have a hard time trying to convince myself to buy tickets the go see the Jays. Hated them back then, even if they didn't play against Nos z'amours.

They better not announce that the Jays will face the Nationals. I might just lose it :rant:

RC51 09-09-2013 04:43 PM

this is a money grab. baseball thinks montreal will fill the olympic stadium with 70,000

yoyo999 09-09-2013 04:44 PM

I doubt very much this sells out. They're spring training games. For the sake of Montreal baseball fans, I really hope it does sell-out though.

I can see crowds in the 40-45k range, slightly less for the second game. I think they might even be banking on the some Torontonians making a wekeend of it in Montreal and upstate NY Mets fans to make the trek.

Also, I predict this is a precursor to the Jays holding a regular season weekend series at the BigO. Not because mlb wants to bring baseball to montreal but the Jays want to expand their reach. They have a market of 3.5 million people that gets all the national networks, more specifically sportsnet.

BoNeS42 09-09-2013 04:50 PM

I'll go just to cheer for the Mets.

FrontierPsyCHiatrist* 09-09-2013 04:53 PM

Anyone from Québec city who plans to go to the game willing to pick me up?

I'm already picturing a 3-hour ride with Patofqc :scared:

Sports1131 09-09-2013 05:29 PM

I don't care when this is; I'll be there. I have no idea what to expect for the attendance -- asking for ~45,000 for spring training baseball two nights in a row is a lot, but I believe we sold out a Raptors exhibition game so maybe. I hope there's a great crowd. :)

Dekar 09-09-2013 07:53 PM

I'm going to boo the hell out of the Toronto.

bryan1966 09-09-2013 07:58 PM

I will be there for both games. Montreal needs to send a message to MLB.

DJ Breadman 09-09-2013 08:04 PM

Need ***** in the seats, who cares if you don't like the teams just get super drunk and forget where you are

Le Tricolore 09-09-2013 08:35 PM

I like the Jays.

Hannibal 09-09-2013 08:37 PM

I'll try to be there for sure!!

1UP 09-10-2013 05:37 AM

I'll be there with a few of my friends for at least 1 game.

Can't miss that.

AllanMTL46 09-10-2013 06:10 AM

I'll be there. Don't give a **** about the Jays, I'm there to take part in the message we're about to send to the baseball world :yo:.
