Jayson Stark reports that the Expos' players have been told that they are definitely moving and probably to Washington in 2005.
Besides saying that it's about time, I just want to plug for the umpteenth time my study from a couple of years back on the Expos problem. I think that the final analysis was that they should move to D.C., except that it wasn't.
The good news for Montreal is that once the Expos leave the countdown starts for when the city is a viable threat to extort concessions from other teams' fanbases. To quote Sonny Bono, "And the beat goes on."
