I understand the black eye that Loria has given MLB, and would understand Selig stepping in stopping a deal like this from happening.

Would he be doing it because its the Blue Jays? Or because of the principal?
It won't matter why Selig does it. It will matter how Toronto fans - indeed, Canadian fans - interpret it.

Even if Selig comes out and swears up and down he did what he did out of principle, and even if that's true, people here aren't going to buy it. After Montreal, fans up here aren't going to take Selig at his word for anything. At best, they'll view it as favouritism in favour of the large markets; at worst, they'll assume a conspiracy is afoot to kill the Jays as the Expos were killed - and hey, the same two people are involved here!
