Can't wait until the Nationals win a World Series and that shuts all of you up. Get over yourselves and direct your hate to the appropriate place in Miami.

Lets see Sandoval follow up that historic night!

@Coldplay come on! Seriously. You and I know DC acted like carpet baggers & erased all 36 years of Expos history. They are no Angels. besides the fact they lost 2 of their own teams, you'd think they'd have more respect.

Don't hold your breath waiting on the Nats.

The hatred runs deep, deeper than you seem to think if you feel a Nats victory would shut all us up.

They won't win one any time soon, no worries.

Parez reportedly got his pension a few days ago. Third or fourth for pro to die after getting a large chunk of money from MLB

Loria involved in yet another firesale, and this time it benefits the Jays. I'm more than okay with that.

If only Loria would up and die right now, though, things would be better.

Loria showing he's the most inept lowlife to ever run a North American sports team.

This has been a pretty good couple of months for Expos fans. First Washington has one of the worst choke jobs in the history of baseball and now the entire world is reminded of how terrible Jeffrey Loria is.

Honestly, Miami and Washington get what they deserve. If only lightning would strike the pool that Loria and Samson are in . . .

The sad thing about Loria and Miami is the Marlins are having the same attendance issues the Expos had during their slow death, and you don't see Selig trying to move them.

Washington dangled $600 million of public money for a new stadium for any MLB team that wanted to move there. Look at how many teams are thinking about moving but have nowhere to go because no city wants to be ripped off on a new stadium. DC was all too eager to hand over their money to MLB.

If DC expected a team to pay for their own stadium it's not inconceivable the Expos are still in Montreal. I don't know what state they would be in, however.

Owners like Loria should not be in professionnal sport. He's in it for the money, not the "pleasure" of being an owner. All he cares is what goes in his pocket.

I am not saying a good owner disregard profits, but a team should be focused on winning, not making a profit. It's the wrong business to do so.

Tear down the Forum and build a stadium there.

No.

Also, the Forum Site is nowhere near big enough.

To put into context how big an MLB stadium is, to get a site that could host an MLB-size facility you would need to build on top of a site the size of Dawson College plus the Forum's site thrown in for good measure.
