Default Expos to Washington, D.C.?

Expos players were told this week that a decision on their 2005 home is near, that it won't be Montreal and that there is a strong likelihood they will be living in the Washington, D.C., area.

Sources familiar with the Expos' relocation process told ESPN.com on Thursday that union leaders Donald Fehr and Gene Orza met Wednesday with Montreal player representative Brian Schneider and assistant rep Brad Wilkerson.

The player reps were informed by the union that there is now an overwhelming probability that they will wind up in either Washington or Northern Virginia -- although there is still a small chance that baseball could opt to move the franchise to Las Vegas.

The players now believe Washington is the favorite, with Northern Virginia looming as a compromise choice if Orioles owner Peter Angelos attempts to block Washington's bid. Either way, the players were told that the union is very confident this is, finally, their last season in Montreal.


Full story here.

Might as well move them, they don't have anything left in Montreal... they lost their one solid player... they don't have any fan support, and obviously aren't wanted in Montreal... it good to see teams move from time to time, see some new rosters, some new jerserys, ballparks. This isn't 100% quite yet though...

Washington had 2 chances before and they blew it. The old Senators who are now the Twins and the new Senators who are now the Rangers.

^---You don't think it will work, eh?

Washington, D.C. seems like they could have a decent start for fan base... and some cash to back up their team... first they need some decent players though...

No I don't think it can. Washington just isn't a sports town, just a Redskins one.

They have the population base, but can they get people to care and also I don't think too many Oriole fans in the area would be willing to jump ship.

Yeah, especially not for the Expos...

I still wonder where the Twins would have went a couple years ago if they had been contracted...

*Grumbles about Bud Selig as leaving the thread.*

There were plans actually to merge the Twins with the Expos.

From the beginning, I was aginst the Twins getting the axe. Minneapolis-St.Paul is a great sports town (Go Vikes, Wild and T-Wolves lol)

Interesting. The Twins were never known for a star-studded roster... but they seemed to always have decent coaching.

Out of 4 teams... we only have two championships to speak of... including some NCAA hockey championships and NCAA wrestling championships...

I'm just gonna leave this thread now though before this gets way off topic.
