LOL same complaint that didn't last long last year. The Jay's are Canada's local team until Montreal gets a team back hopefully in the not so distant future. If you find the Goldeyes have some support and a large fan base nationwide then go ahead start a thread about AAIPB.
The Jay's are Canada's MLB team like it or not and they have a huge fan base coast to coast . It's impossible to go to a single game in Toronto or in the US withought seeing provincial flags NFLD seems to always represent. The Jay's success will play a big factor in Montreal getting their team back. The last three seasons have seen the west coast fan base explode as well. Just watch a Mariner home game against the Jay's and of the 34,000 fans in the seats an estimated 20,000 come from North of the border primarily Vancouver.
It's not often this vast nation can unite behind a single team so yes just like last year the Jay's belong here.
