DC Baseball?

The issue of Major League Baseball possibly returning to the district is proving rich grist for the rumor mill, the Washington Post promising that "baseball officials [are] promising to decide where to move the Expos sometime after Tuesday's All-Star Game" implying the two choices are the one in Northern Virginia near Dulles airport, and one of four locations in the District.

"It's inconceivable to me that anybody from Washington, D.C., would schlep all the way out there to go to a ballgame," said Tony Bullock, communications director for D.C. Mayor Anthony A. Williams (D). "It's a hellish commute any time of day, but especially between 4 and 7 o'clock in the afternoon." [...]

William L. Collins III, head of the Dulles investment group, breezily cites his side's advantages. "If you're a business looking to relocate any place in the country, your choice would be Northern Virginia," he said. The shopping, good schools and good jobs "make this the best place to live and raise a family in America," he said.
