Source: Expos are going to Washington. (Yahoo!)

D.C. At The Bat. "Now that everybody's cards are on the table, the question to be asked is: After two years of threats, cross-continental junkets, and messing around with Terrmel Sledge's career, what did Bud finally get for his fellow owners? And on the other side of the ledger, what kind of deal are Mayor Anthony Williams and his council cronies proposing for D.C. taxpayers?" (Baseball Prospectus)

Final DC-sion. "Baseball gets to tap into the rich baseball history in Washington. It is the third oldest baseball area after all (behind New York and Philly—check your NABBP history). Pictures of Walter Johnson and Clark Griffith will abound and expect plenty of ye olde tyme uniform appearances (unless the Twins own the rights to those). President John Kerry will get to throw out the first ball next year (if there is a god—I’m not optimistic). Hopefully, the season openers will return to Cincy and DC. And baseball gets to extort a new stadium from another community. It’s win-win all around." (Mike's Baseball Rants)

Au Revoir, Mes Amours. Jonah Keri says goodbye to the Expos. (Baseball Prospectus)
