The DC Baseball Saga is Over...For Now

WELL, AT THIS hour the NFL labor agreement looks to be in severe jeopardy, but there is good news if you're a baseball fan in DC. Major League Baseball today signed a lease for the Nationals use of a $611 million dollar stadium deal. If you've been following the DC Council v. MLB story you know that this means...absolutely nothing. I've written at length about this saga in this space [read more]. We've had deals before, only to be screwed up by the DC City Council.

But despite my skepticism, it looks as if this may be it. Baseball may have a formal, final deal to stay in Washington. I'll believe it when I'm sitting in the new stadium with a hot dog and a coke on Opening Day 2008..or 2009...or...(remember, we have the DC Council)...2010.
