    It's a regional rivalry thing, not a inferiority complex.

    Montrealers, self respecting ones anyways, shouldn't be caught cheering on Toronto.

    Montrealers don't have a team now, and at least Toronto has reached out and gone for the preseason games in Montreal the last few years.

    I could obviously never cheer for the Leafs, and I will still tell people I'm an Expos fan first, but I think we've gotten to the point where you can't be upset with people in Montreal cheering for the Jays. I do think that if and when Montreal gets a team back, that's going to cause some weird feelings in people. I mean, I haven't lived in Montreal for over 20 years but will obviously support them. But would I support them ahead of the Jays? I honestly don't know.

    Being upset about how other people feel about sports is just silly.

    Oh, I'm not upset at all. It's been nice drinking the tears of blue jays fans all year and see people who wouldn't shut up about them suddenly never talk baseball at all.

    It's been a wonderful year.

    I had no problem cheering for both, simply because they were in different leagues, and I would hope that, that scenario remains the same. Now if they were in the same league or worst, same division, ouch!!

    Something about waking up to discover the vulture's team has lost in the NLDS yet again that puts a smile on my face.

    The Expos curse lives on!!

    Have a soft spot for the Cubs ever since I was in Chicago earlier this year, what a great town, I got a nice souvenir championship bag (that I managed to break after 1 month, but still)...

    game totals are not going to be reduced and no way they go to 8 team divisions

    Portland also cannot support an MLB team, the city is too small

    This format will kill off the concept of separate National and American Leagues which would inevitably lead to the DH being used for all teams which would suck.

    Both leagues should use the DH anyway.

    No. The DH needs to be expunged from the game forever. It's an abomination which allows mediocre managers (like Cito Gaston) to win games simply by filling out a line-up card and then taking a 3 hour nap in the dugout.

    I hope the stadium and team are flushed down Chesapeake Bay like giant turds.

    Agree, but I fear it's inevitable.
