just repeating what I heard man...i think it makes sense though...i dont see him going to a big city at all, or one of the teams thats perennially first or second in their division. I think Baltimore fits, though my first thought (though random and unfounded) was Kansas City, especially if Beltran leaves which rumor has it is still a possibility. I think he'll go to a small market team..Baltimore is just as likely as any other small market teams.

You think Vlad only wants to play for a losing team and not a winning team? That makes no sense.

oh no no i knew you werent saying I was wrong, i wasnt trying to say you were wrong either, sorry if thats how it sounded...hell theres no tellin whos wrong or right yet, who knows, maybe he'll go to Japan? I think it makes sense but its not necessarily what I expect. It is really interesting to see how many different thoughts there are on where he will go and where the expos will go thuogh, this has been one of the best threads I've ever been involved in. haha

Its not all THAT absurd...A-Rod went to the Rangers and they were and are a loser. Griffey went to Cincinatti who hadnt been winning I dont htink (though his reason was that was home) Maybe I'm wrong but Pudge Rodriguez was an FA signee with the Marlins who were losers before this year too, wasnt he? I'm just basing what I said on a couple different things I've heard...one that he may go to Baltimore (quote Peter Gammons who is a guru of the game, lol) and two, what really sticks out, is that word on Vlad personally is that hes a small town guy, doesnt like the exposure that is inevitable in a city like New York, Boston, Atlanta (which is who i meant when i said teams who are perenially first and/or second, sory if that was unclear) and is not likely to sign with a team who resides in a big metropolis.

There are more interesting things at work here thuogh...you're right, it would be stupid to sign with a team that stinks...but i think Vlad is a different kind of free agent, in that I don't expect him to automatically go to the highest bidder or the best team. Not that he wont, but I dont think its an automatic, ya know? Know what I think is MOST likely, is that, especially is the expos are in it till the end, ESPECIALLY if they go to San Juan or wherever, Vlad will stay put in Montreal. Seriuosly though, i think we're finding where he'll wind up is anybody's guess.

Lol, sweet moses, that would be RIDICIULOUS. Imagine how far that 502 foot ball he hit off Atlanta in Montreal would have gone if he was at Coors! DAMNNNN haha. That would be fun to watch all the highlights of his homers there.
