Is D.C. Baseball Slipping Away Already?

Apparently some members of the D.C. City Council have recently had a religious conversion and now suddenly care about the taxpayers.

The Washington Post is reporting that the Council approved legislation last night that drastically alters the city's deal with Major League Baseball. The new funding legislation requires that half of the cost for D.C.'s brand-spanking new ballpark be picked up by private funds.

D.C. mayor Anthony Williams says this development will jeopardize the agreement with MLB to bring the Montreal Expos to the nation's capital.

Hear that Northern Virginia? Now's your chance!
