Expos Not Coming

This headline will be repeated several times over the next two or three months. It debuts in the Hartford Courant, which reports that to no one's surprise but his, John Alevizos' proposal to move the Expos to central Connecticut has been rejected by MLB.

"Jerry Reinsdorf told me the committee didn't believe the region of Central Connecticut had a large enough metropolitan trade area [to support a team]," Alevizos said Monday. "Frankly, I find that a bit ridiculous."
Alevizos had fantasized that the Expos might move to a 34,000-seat stadium to be constructed along I-91 in Wallingford, Connecticut. Wallingford is about 15 miles north of New Haven, 25 miles south of Hartford.
