Today I am pleased to announce that I have started a podcast with my good friend Sean. The title of our new podcast is 4ES (4th Estate, Entertainment and Sports) and the title explains it all.

When you think baseball, you think home runs; stolen bases, and diving catches. You think of robbing home runs off the wall and 10+ strikeout games from quality pitchers. When you think about baseball you do not really think about fighting! The bench-clearing brawl, which is one of the dumbest things in baseball to date, went a little overboard last week in San Diego.
Jays Season Opener!
The Toronto Blue jays are set to start their season on April 2nd against the Cleveland Indians. This season is expected to be a good one for the Toronto franchise; there have been many great acquisitions over the off-season. Continue reading
The other day I stumbled upon an article from CBS sports and it was not the happiest article that I found either. The article was titled “Baseball’s dying breed” and underneath it was a picture of Tim Raines. It was an article about the last remaining expos in the majors that wore an expos jersey. There are roughly about 15 players with an honourable mention towards an Expos great.
Many Expos fans may hate to see the Nationals succeed in any way and hope that they stay a seller dweller forever.

With the Toronto Blue Jays making a big splash in the off-season I got really excited for the upcoming baseball season, but it also had me day dreaming about the team that made many people fall in love with, but also broke many of their hearts, the Montreal Expos, nos amours. The Montreal Expos started their first season in 1969 and was a true gem in the eyes of Montrealers, Canadians and baseball fans, nevertheless with a lot of bad luck after the 94 strike the Expos left town after the 2004 season which created a hole in many of our hearts. This post however is not about how sad or angry I am about losing the Expos, it is about the happy thoughts that come to mind and about the great times I had in the cavarness Olympic Stadium with the team I loved and enjoyed going to see. Before I go down memory lane in the BIG O I need to share some history in to how and why I started to like baseball and the Spos.
