The baseball community has been trying to bring back the Expos for sometime now. MLB was a central part of the sports community in the City of Montreal (and Quebec) for decades before the franchise made its way to the US capital and became the Washington Nationals. Matthew Ross of the Montreal Baseball Project was interviewed on TSN 690 AM in December 2013 and the interview is a must listen if you are a ball fan in La Belle Province. The old rumor mill is on high alert with the talk being that grounds of the Montreal Children’s Hospital and the adjacent ground could be the future site of a baseball stadium. This would be the launch pad for a new approach to the commissioners office as part of a bid for a new team. The idea makes sense if you consider that the new mega hospital (and subsequent relocation of the Children’s) will leave the whole Atwater Street and St Catherine Street area open for redevelopment. Maybe Peter Sergakis will get behind this move?
We know it is cold, we know you miss summer, we know you miss the boys of summer. Spring training is starting but is it enough? We do not think so.
