Budget problems are being cited. This is a team in wildcard contention, but it isn't allowed to help itself, despite having players in the minors who could fill holes. Disgusting


every once in a while, Rotoworld gets one right. Disgusting. If they don't call up players because they have to pay the players ... that is "Selig" being just a little too cheap. Nice playoff run. Selig needs to go.

That is shameful. :-P

MLB hasn't got a clue. Aren't they trying to *sell* that team? Gosh, call me crazy, but wouldn't a more competitive team draw more interest from buyers?

MLB is probably unhappy that the Expos have started to draw fans. They averaged over 20,000 at their recent homestand. I guess Selig and his gang have to do something to once again sabotage baseball in Montreal. After all, what makes the Expos really attractive to a buyer is the ability to move the team.

Sickening. :-C

Geez. They would get the major league minimum for crying out loud. Doesn't Selig realize that if by some chance the Expos made the playoffs, it would generate some extra revenue? I agree that it's "disgusting" to see them take themselves out of the playoffs. Why not just forfeit the rest of the season. :,-(

It's going to get even uglier in the offseason, when they almost certainly won't sign Vlad back and the commissioner's office will force them to deal both Hernandez and Vazquez rather than pay Livan's huge contract incentive that's about to kick in and offer Vazquez arbitration.

If they were serious about making the team attractive to prospective owners, they would lock both Vlad and Vazquez into a long term deal. Unfortunately, it's shortsighted owners that care only about themselves and the short term (read Steinbrenner) that will prevent any more money going into the Expos.

All they should let Selig do is compete in the sausage race when Randall Simon is in town.
