SPORTS: Report Says Expos Coming to D.C.
ESPN.com reports that the Montreal Expos will be playing baseball at RFK Stadium next season, a signal that the Expos will settle in the D.C. area for the long term. That's is what Expo sources tell ESPN at least. What remains unclear is whether or not the District or Northern Virginia will get the team in the end. Apparently, the District is the favorite.
The players now believe Washington is the favorite, with Northern Virginia looming as a compromise choice if Orioles owner Peter Angelos attempts to block Washington's bid. Either way, the players were told that the union is very confident this is, finally, their last season in Montreal.
