The Party's Over

The potential value of our season ticket package lies in ruins, fellas. The dream of DC Baseball - by that I mean a team owned and operated locally - died last night. And its killer was Linda Cropp.

Linda Cropp is a small politician. Sure, she is the Chairman of the D.C. Council right now. But this too shall pass. And when she dies - as we all die - she will be known for one thing. One single thing - she killed any chance of Major League Baseball in DC for generations to come. Her arrogance, her obduracy, her obtuseness and her pettiness will be remembered. Nothing else. She not only was writing a bill last night, she was writing her epitaph.

I hope you like the fact that you will be remembered for being small-minded, Linda. Good luck with that.

DM and I had a discussion today in which we talked about the "season tickets." Clearly, no one will want to go through with their purchase and you can expect that if the prognosis is that the Naughts will play in RFK in 2005 and then somewhere else (like Vegas) after that, then a) the Nats attendance figures will be lower than the Montreal Expos figures were last season and b) we will all be demanding our deposits back since non-refundable or not, the deposit is either a contract voided by mutual mistake or a contract breached by MLB/the team--and a class action lawsuit is the last thing the Nats would want after this disaster.

Don't worry -- they're giving you a refund, according to DuPuy.
