The Book of Mike

"This is no junior college. This is the notorious University of Miami.ā€ -- Marlins starter Dontrelle Willis, after getting knocked around for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Canes.

Save the Expos!

The Book of Mike has just returned from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and oh the stories we have to tell. However, the flight back from Montreal was late last night, and delayed by rain too, so there will not be much content here today.

However, I will encourage you to visit the folks at Encore Baseball Montreal who are doing what they can to keep the Expos in Montreal. During my visit I signed up and became an official member (you can look me up ā€“ Iā€™m member #1101).

Sure, Encore isn't likely to be successful in accomplishing their goal of keeping the Expos in Montreal, but at the very least it's nice to know that some people care enough to try to do something about it. And if you don't buy that, you can at least acknowledge that it might be in everyone's best interest to keep the team in Montreal anyway. If we don't, it will just be a matter of time until some group starts to lobby for an expansion team, or to relocate an existing team, into what would be - by far - the largest metropolitan area in North America without a Major League Baseball team.
