    I remember the dark days of 1992 when the Giants had been as good as sold to a new owner that was going to move them to Tampa Bay. It took a series of miracles: Peter Magowan putting together a group of local investors in no time flat, the National League pressuring Bob Lurei to sell to local ownership instead, and Lurie agreeing to a lower offer to keep the team in San Francisco. I completely empathize with Expos fans.

    Washington has lost its team twice now

    People keep saying this. Does no one remember the contraction of 1900?Report

    • I’ve lost two CFL teams here (though I didn’t care too much about the second one), not by relocation; they just folded. Apparently, we’ll be getting another one soon. We’ll see how that goes.Report
