He made it clear this was not a "rumour", that it was serious. And that if they get a plan together, they will go to Selig. They cited the Hippodrome as a place they would target as a playing field, and he brought up a recent study that Montreal would be a viable place for an MLB franchise.
There's a lot more he said, but in a nutshell...he's convinced they're going to make a play for a team, and with expansion likely coming, he said there was a chance that could be the window.
My question would be is there enough of an interest in montreal to make the team work? Last time i watched the expos the stadium was border line empty.
I am happy to hear this news though. I am not a big baseball fan but when the team left i felt like crap
