Could Expos return to Montreal?

Pretty much every other city that is rumoured to get a pro sports team gets its own thread, so here is one for the Expos.

As of now, it looks as though there is nothing serious on the table yet. I would prefer an AL team, since games against the Red Sox, Yankees and even Blue Jays will be guaranteed to draw more than Expos games against the Phillies, Mets and Braves.

I'm not a big fan of using the Hippodrome's location though. That area isn't exactly easy to get to.

I think a good spot would either have to be very close to downtown, or in a western/south-western neighbourhood. There are not many baseball fans in the east end or northern areas of the city.

Here are a few sites I like:
-Griffintown
-Montreal Technopark (the area in between the Champlain and Victoria Bridges)
-Peel Bassin (where that Casino project was supposed to go a few years back)

It has been seven years since the Expos left town, but the dream of Major League Baseball returning one day remains for many fans.

And that dream has now been given some hope thanks to Rodger Brulotte, the former longtime French-language broadcaster for the Expos.

Last Friday, on radio station CKAC, Brulotte said he has been approached by an unnamed business group interested in trying to bring baseball back to the city – and we’re not talking about the minor leagues.
