Some News!

Just wanted to get this up early today:
Major League Baseball's relocation committee will meet with District officials later this month in Washington to discuss financing options and construction schedules for a proposed ballpark, marking perhaps the most detailed session in the city's long quest for baseball.
. . .
Nonetheless, expectations are high within the District that a long-delayed decision on the future home of the Expos will arrive within a matter of weeks. Several of the other bidders for the Expos do not expect such a quick timetable, but most do think a choice will be made by the fall.
"We're very optimistic, and expect this to be settled in the next three, four weeks," said Mark Tuohey, chairman of the D.C. Sports & Entertainment Commission.
It sounds pretty encouraging, but it could all be BS. I've noticed that a good way to gauge my optimism is to see how closely I'm following the Expos. And at the moment, it's not very closely.
