Endgame: We Have a Site

From the front page of the Post:

District officials disclosed plans yesterday to build a publicly financed stadium costing more than $400 million on the Anacostia waterfront near South Capitol Street, amid growing signs that Major League Baseball will attempt to move the Montreal Expos to Washington.

Two high-level baseball sources said the owners' relocation committee is leaning toward recommending at an executive council meeting tomorrow in Milwaukee that the Expos be moved to Washington. That would trigger what figure to be delicate negotiations with Baltimore Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos.

Here's the Times report (no registration). This is happening, and we could have the announcement tomorrow.

How about Jack Evans Stadium?

Just a stadium? I'm saying we rename the capital Jack Evans, DC.

A lawyer I know ran into Evans last week at a spcial function, and everyone who was there in the room broke into applause.
