Not many did in Montreal either, that’s why they moved to Wash DC in 2004
Like TB, Expos often had good teams - similar in lack of attendance too tho
& in turn, why Sens twice left Wash, for MN in 1960 & Texas in 1971

I really liked the Expos when I was a kid for some reason. Guess I felt bad for them. At least they won "something" in the 1981 strike year. And they were like a farm system for the rest of baseball: Gary Carter (RIP), Andre Dawson, Tim Raines, Warren Cromartie, Vladimir Guerrero, Bartolo Colon, Lee Smith and of course Randy Johnson for a little bit.

Plus they had the coolest logo ever. Took me a long time to know what it meant.

I said to my wife today that I was sad. She looked at me and said, "why?".

While I love football, I am bummed that baseball is over for about five months.

Huge celebration ystrdy, now a crimp in things w/word that playoff MVP/likely Cy winner Stephen has opted out of his contract to test the free agent waters -
He’ll still probably be cheered at Capital building game tonite, just not as loudly as if his decision to depart DC hadn’t been announced
Wattabout tmrw w/the president tho - Trump will have to tell Nats about last night’s MMA card

He just finished the 4th year of a 7 year $175M contract
It was also his best year culminating in WS MVP

They’ll need to back up several Brink’s trucks for what Stephen is going to command on the open market this winter - it’ll make $175M seem like a pittance & likely be the most lucrative contract ever

He’ll end up in NY or LA, they have deep enough pockets (or mayb Texas) - hopefully Sox’ll stay outta this bidding war - plus he could always revert to his injury-prone ways

JD stayed on - hopefully they can work out an extension for Mookie b4 next season
Wait til next year

He wants to continue, & Dustin has declared his intent to play next year - says his knee feels fine & will be in spring training - few deserve a successful comeback more than him - IT did it, Dustin will too

Field mgr Joe Madden, 65, is going to report to Tony La Russa, 75, “senior adviser for baseball operations” next year in Anaheim - seems like more & more people (like LAD pitching coach Phil Regan, also political candidates 4 instance) are working into their ‘golden years’ - w/that experience coaching Trout, Ohtani, Puljos & co. - they could be wrecking crew in 2020

Had no idea La Russa was w/Sox the last 2 years - taking care of Mookie is job #1

Brewers lose Grandal to the White Sox, but glad to see they've gone back to the best logo in sports, the Ball-in-Glove, and cleaned up their uniforms.

Brewers-Cubs kickoff Sunday Night baseball 2020...

Speaking of new uniforms, glad to see the Padres (remember them?) are back in brown.

The Auburn Doubledays?
Great name for the Auburn NY Single A team - just misses being Abner Doubleday altogether
The Doubledays recently upgraded their field w/artificial turf - only to find out they’re one of 42 minor league teams MLB wants to end its affiliation with

In their 50th year, 2020 is the finale for the PawSox in RI - then they move to a new stadium in Worcester Mass, 10,000 seater costing $10M to build

....& then to be called “The WooSox”
What’ll happen w/McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket & the surrounding neighborhood etc - the new stadium I’m sure is awesome, will be keen to check it out etc - I like PawSox a whole lot better than WooSox tho
—-
Brad Marchand, 10 points in his last 4 games
David P, 23 goals in 24 games
Z (4-7-11) - high level both ends, solid scoring #s

Still in all it was more the exception than the rule last night - we see them again Sunday & it’ll be a different Habs team then (we’ll also have Patrice back)

things change qwik, we were in the same L4 funk they’re in, just a couple weeks ago - Jaroslav had to be sharp making 36 saves against his former team & coach J

With all due respect, do you really think they have the best logo in ALL of sports?

Objectively, yes absolutely.

There are some funny ones. I lived in Lansing, MI years ago and the Cubs A Team was the Lansing Lugnuts. They still exist but have a different affiliation. I saw several players that came up to the bigs. Carlos Beltran also played there. Had a lot of fun at that park.

Any thoughts on Strasburg? No national fan at all but I was glad to see a guy re-sign with his original team.

It’ll drive up Mookie’s asking price, that’s for sure - Stephen got $245M> Gerrit Cole’s deal is still pending> Mookie’s agent will look to top both -

& just like Harper & Machado last year, that figure will be surpassed later on as Merrifield, Mondesi Jr & players like that opt for open-market free agency

Cool that Stephen opted to stay - wouldn’a taken much convincing w/an offer like that

Hoping Mookie follows suit & stays w/his original team - & that his deal gets done b4 next season

Bumgarner for 5 years, 85 million. I wonder why San Fran didn't pony up more cash for him. I think I would have.

Holy makarel
Catcher Y. Grandal - former Cy winner Dallas Keuchel - slugger E. Encarnacion - useful veteran lefty Gio Gonzalez - now the inside track, media says, for Yasiel Puig

Look at CHI-SOX go in free agent acquisitions - South Side b-ball fans are getting visions of 2005 all over again

Yoan came of age last year (.315, 25HR, 74 RBI) - he & Tim Anderson are a top middle-infield combo - Gio & Giolioto along w/DK & possibly a former top flight minor league prospect coming back from Tommy John surgery

No, G. Rate Field might become a 2020 field of dreams & the focal point of Chicagoans all over again

R.I.P. Don Larsen. Probably one of the most memorable days in MLB history. The footage of Yogi Bera jumping into his arms is priceless!

Yes, RIP Don Larsen - a journeyman pitcher w/his own niche of greatness

There go ChiSox again, now they’ve signed to a 50M contract, their top prospect - hit .328 w/power #s & 36 SB in minors last season - will ChiSox run rampant this season

He pitched briefly for ChiSox (1961) - again, RIP, Don Larsen

He is supposed to be awesome. Not a White Sux fan at all but living in Chicago it is kind of exciting for their fanbase. I have to give them credit for going for it NOW. I had a discussion the other day with a guy I know who is a big fan and he claims they are looking to 2021, not this year. That makes no sense to me since two of their free agent signings are one-year deals.

Sounds a lot like his teammate Yoan when he was coming up - can’t-miss prospect, got huge bucks before ever playing in the big leagues
Yoan only had his breakout year last year, his 4th (3rd full) - but the new kid could prove to be a phenom alright

Quick aside, noticed Larsen finished his career w/a 4 inning cameo wCubs in ‘67
Would love to see a picture of Don Larsen & Ernie Banks as Cubs teammates - wild
Years ago here on the boards a poster, alloak41 put up numerous such gems - great thread, “heroes faves & legends” or something like that

Look Out AL, Chi-Sox Have Only 20/20 Vision

Biggest concern for the White Sox is still the pitching - especially relief pitchers...... but they will be fun to watch. Their park is easy to get to from my house - will probably take in a few games this year....

The Hammer came down on the Astros for sign steeling. Feel bad for AJ Hinch, sounds like he tried to stop it from happening. Red Sox are under investigation as well. Stephen, what's with Bean Town teams trying to steal an edge?

You guessed it. This stinks. You can even see the TV and the can they were hitting in a the MLB's own 2017 World Series doc. Both the 2017 and 2018 World Series (and Houston's 2019 pennant) are going to be shrouded in in this stink, feel bad for the pitchers.
