The Expos start their "home" series in Puerto Rico tonight. Meanwhile an Atlanta businessman named Charles Vaughn has announced that he plans on moving a team, the Expos or a team to be named later, to San Juan in the near future. Maybe, it'll be the San Juan Dodgers--I kind of tend to doubt it.
To accommodate a major-league team on a more permanent basis, they'll have to do a bit more than rename Estadio Hiram Bithorn to Hiram Bithorn Stadium:
Somehow Estadio was good enough for a major-league opener but not for a home series.
Even the Expos don't know what to call their new "home":
A rose by any other name yuddah yuddah. Anyway, Vaughn has been looking to move a team to San Juan since October. As my study on the Expos potential suitors from last September indicated it is by far the most populous area in the US and Canada without a major-league team. Of course, that dubious distinction will fall to Montreal once the Expos do move. Hiram Bithorn, however, does not seem to be suited to major-league baseball on a regular basis. Vaughn wants to upgrade it. We'll have to see.
Well, I just can't wait to see Vladimir Warrior, Orlando Goatherd, Wil Lamb, Tony Arms Jr., Volume Okha, and Brad Wilkerson play in Porto Rico.
