A group is looking into the possibility of bringing Major League Baseball back to Montreal.

I wonder what "small market" team might be willing to relocate.

Baseball SHOULD return to Montreal. No franchise has ever had crappier ownership than the Expos....between Brochu's group and Loria, that would be the death knell for any team.

As we've seen in hockey, CFL football and even pro wrestling, Montreal fans are as passionate as they come about their sports. Hell, even the 5000 regulars who were still coming to the Big O at the end were still making a lot of noise and were totally into it. If Montreal could line up legitimate owners and build a Safeco Field-style ballpark downtown, a franchise could absolutely thrive there.

As to what teams could move, the Rays and Athletics stand out as the obvious candidates. Les Montreal Atletiques?

"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

I didn't say the aforementioned Chavez, Koch, Tejada, and Durham weren't quality (good quality at that), I just said "I don't like any of 'em." Lots of players I don't like exist, but those four make me hate the A's.
