The Bestest: Unless Glass was willing to sell his little cash cow, the Royals aren't going anywhere.

The Royals still make money especially with the new renovations to the K regardless of how bad they suck. They're not going anywhere.

The Bestest: he Bay Area can easily support two franchises; the problem is the specific location. Raiders fans barely like going to I can see the As succeeding in San Jose no problem, and MLB -really- doesn't want to lose another west coast team.

I can too. But until the A's and Giants can come to some sort of agreement, since SJ is part of Giants territory, nothing will change in the Bay Area. 

It's ultimately going to turn into the same deal that happened when the Nationals moved to DC despite Baltimore's objections.

mikemoto: Cromartie spent most of his career in Japan. This is also a supremely stupid idea.

"When we lost Gary Carter this year, I think the city really woke up, realized how much of an impact he made on the city," said Cromartie.

I read Cromartie's biography of playing in Japan. He shiats all over Gary Carter in his book.

ongbok: Unless their is a cultural change in Montreal baseball will not work there. Baseball can survive in Toronto because it is a more Americanized city, Montreal isn't.

So true. It's filled with frogs.

Krustofsky: Baseball in Canada died after the 1994 strike. It's a real shame because they had the best team in MLB back then, but between the lousy owner and the worst stadium ever built, they never had a chance.

At least the Blue Jays will catch the Red Sox pretty soon and finish in fourth place this season.

I cry a little inside when I think about 1994. I have no doubt they could have gone to the World Series and probably won it all. And it may have kept the team in Montreal.

Montreal will never get a team as long as they have to play at Olympic Stadium. The only place worse to see a baseball game is in Tampa Bay.

Las Vegas will get a MLB team before Montreal.

Portland will get a MLB team before Montreal.

Fargo will get a MLB team before Montreal.

/Book it. Done.
