    As Phil Rizzuto would have said, “Holy cow!” A couple of DC politicians grew some and told MLB to put up some money for the new stadium. The owners are playing hardball (pun intended) and threatening to pull out of DC entirely. DC ought to tell them to pound sand. Using any tax dollars for a stadium is almost surely a waste of taxpayers’ money. If baseball wants to get out of Montreal (and they do, desperately), then they should be building their own stadium.

    I applaud the politicans who’ve come (partially) to their senses. The original proposal (roughly half a billion in taxes) was abominable. Forcing baseball to come up with half of it is a much better (for the taxpayers) deal.
