I was in Charleston, SC over the weekend and they had an AP picture in the paper of Jose meeting C. Lee at home plate from the Sunday game.

Unless I'm missing something, this is nothing more than the regular AP game story ... :?:

Marq it wasn't anything original from WP, but having it be a top story here was enough to make my day :D:

As a former DC resident I'm excited about the Expos moving to DC. It should happen, finally. If not now then it will never happen. Screw Angelos.

It's very ironic the whole Washington / Baltimore thing.

History lesson time.

In 1951 Bill Veeck began to start the process of moving the St. Louis Browns to Baltimore.

Guess who was dead set on stopping him....Washington Senators owner Calvin Griffith. Seems the shoe is on the other foot fifty years later with Peter Angelos.

How Veeck got around Griffiths objections was vintage Veeck. He convinced the National Brewing Corporation. (Makers of Carling's 'Black Label' beer, shudder...) to pay Griffith 300,000 as part of a new sponsor contract but ONLY if Baltimore had a MLB team! Veeck had already completed a deal with them for his new Baltimore franchise.

I read the AP story while I was still at work. I didn't get home until hours after the game was over. The reporter noted early in the Twins were playing without their two best hitters. It didn't say anything about Ordonez and Harris being out of the lineup.

Don't knock 'Black Label,' I drank a lot of that in college. Usually because I knew if I got it, nobody else would drink my beer. :D: :gulp:
