Montreal - Tampa Bay ExRays

Montreal - Tampa Bay ExRays Wow what a concept and a really good one too. Tampa Bay has had a great team and lousy support, Montreal had lousy teams and good support. Put them together and we have something fun to talk about. 82 games is an expensive season ticket, 41 might be more affordable. Each city would compete to be the most supportive and the team and MLB comes out on top. Yes, I like these kind of out-of-the-box ideas.
Remember the time with Mr Pohlad was willing to contraction? http://a.espncdn.com...an/1274034.html. In this new and nicer idea the length of the baseball season is no longer a problem. Too hot in Florida - play in Montreal, too cold in Montreal play in Florida. Why not?

So where can the Twins find a partner city? Not that we need too, but just in case where can we go? How about Duluth? Or if we want the international connection - Thunder Bay. If we are looking to be creative how about Des Moines - Iowa has no MLB connection. It does not need to be half a season. Make it a series that typically does not fill the stadium and let it excite another location. Expand our fan base.

I am enamored with this idea. How about the Yankees? Maybe Havana los Yankees.

Red Sox - medias Rojas - in Mexico City.

What is a Dodger in Spanish - Gandul or French le resquilleur

I am thinking this could be the MLB entry into world baseball.

The cubs in French - Louveteaux or Japanese カブス - Kabusu




Winnipeg Twins Has a nice ring to it. 

I beg to differ on the point that "Montreal had lousy teams but good support". If by support you mean good attendance numbers. Other than 4 or 5 years in the late 70's & early 80's they never drew good crowds throughout their 35 years in Montreal.  

 

My opinion, just move them already to Charlotte, Nashville, Portland or Vegas. Those markets are growing population centers and likely could sustain a major league team.
