I'll watch baseball when they get some sort of system in place that doesn't allow 2 or 3 teams out of 30 to always be World Series favorites. Baseball now is worse off than the NHL ever was.

The last league to avoid the salary cap. Change in baseball is tough! I don't see it happening in this lifetime, the game is doing to well to make it happen.

Speaking of likable things on the Jays that are Expos like. I also am a fan of Matt Stairs(Canadian) like us. Just a regular Joe who can slug!!!
He was an Expo for a short while, I think we drafted him.

Its sad, I miss calling out to Chavez to throw me a ball (which he did many, many times, I have a bunch, one game he threw me like 3) I also miss the 1$ hot dogs, and getting out to the batting practice early to catch a few in the crowds. There will never be baseball here again, Im not going to deny it. Its soccer here, nobody plays baseball anymore. Every year I watch my league have fewer and fewer teams, the younger kids don't even have teams anymore in some places. Baseball fields are being converted to soccer fields; people just aren't interested anymore...

sad but true.

I played my minor league ball in Saint-Leonard and when we played it was big, alot of teams, alot of interest. My last year Midget was in 2002 and since then baseball in St Leo has died. Not many teams. Ive seen 2 of the fields I played at be converted into soccer fields and it sucks because I loved playing when I was younger.

Football took the place of baseball in Quebec once the 'Spos downfall began. Credit goes to the Alouettes returning. Man, if my Jays had the scouting the Expos had we wouldn't be in the position we're in today with know-nothing rich boys at Rogers employing Godfrey to make clown decisions at every level, namely Ricciardi and his dog-and-pony show. Putting his no good minor leaguer manager friend from his days in the Mets organization in there hurts too.

Jays haven't found a Guerrero-type prospect in years, dating back to Delgado. If Gibbons is fired, it doesn't matter. The cheap, baseball illiterate organization will give inexperienced former Jay favourite Ernie Whitt the job. When the Tigers stopped dicking around with people like Alan Trammel and hired a proven winner in Jim Leyland, they got it right. Jays have hired one guy with big league managerial experience since firing Gaston and it was Jim Fregosi, who was not great and was a bit of a drunk and yet got more out of the team than any of the chumps since. Ok, Jays rant over.

I played minor baseball for many districts in Montreal. Leo's Boys in the point, later in Ville Emard & as an Adult in Dorval, I hate to fathom that these great fields would ever be converted to Soccer Fields, nothing against Soccer, just we need to have a choice of playing both & this is still North America. I Hope Baseball Quebec is still active....

I played baseball my whole childhood in Pointe-Aux-Trembles and I recently went back for a tournament and was surprised to see things are still going well over there. There's still some hope, but very little... Where I live now, the cities have to merge to make a team and play against other merged cities. It's sad to think one day I'm going to want to take my kids to the park and throw a ball, like my dad did, and his dad did to him, only to have him want to play soccer instead because that's the reality of it... Baseballs no longer an option in alot of areas.

I haven't been to Point-Ste-Charles for about 5 years, but the ballpark & Leber Parc was great!!! It had(or has) the Wrigley Field Type Lights, I played a lot of tournaments there. Lot's of up's, but a few downs, that Parc, should always be baseball. It's more of a field but major lights for it's time.

In the outfield, you would feel that twilight feeling in the evening.

I don't think baseball could ever die in Montreal, just too much history there from jackie robinson to jarry park.
