Holding Pattern

The papers are churning out more and more Whither the Expos pieces, but that doesn't mean there's news. Anthony Williams getting pissy with the Virginians and Peter Angelos calling the mayor of Baltimore a two-bit punk are certainly entertaining, but very little has changed since the announcement of the Loudoun plan. My problem is that there isn't any news and that I don't feel the urge to cover the Expos if they're not going to wind up in DC. That leaves me with very little to blog about.

Anyway, the Post had an article on Sunday rehashing the DC vs Loudoun argument. There's also a letter from two DC council members who have reservations about Williams' financing plan. Meanwhile, the Times has a Thom Loverro piece with no new information. The column starts by saying:
The prevalent feeling among baseball insiders is that after 32 years the issue of baseball returning to the Washington area is on the verge of being resolved.
That feeling is based purely on a sense of momentum rather than facts.
One wonders why he bothered to write it, then.

Also worth checking it out is this feature in the Post. They're recapping the 1924 season day by day, which is kind of nifty. I won't spoil the ending for you.
