Wasn’t always that way, you know. I miss the Expos:
With all the talk about baseball returning to Montreal, there has never been a potential owner step up and declare himself with real money ready to pursue a Double-A or Triple-A franchise. Plus, unlike Ottawa, the city government has never stepped up to back the project. Montreal, if it was to be a minor-league team, would need a stadium with a good location. They could not play at Olympic Stadium. Ottawa is ahead of Montreal in that regard too. The Cromartie group was looking for a major-league franchise which at this point is not going to happen. I would love to see baseball return to Montreal and Ottawa and Calgary and Edmonton.
