Outside Chance #344 goes out the window

The Courts threw out the RICO case. Basically the case stated that Loria committed fraud by purposely devaluing the Expos. Or in layman's terms, Loria made the Expos really bad so MLB could buy it cheap. This may seem apparent but I don't believe the Expos got really bad until MLB had it and forced it to work on a aglet budget. I'd like to look at the ruling - maybe I can find it somewhere.

The vote still hasn't taken place (scheduling conflicts), but the council agreed that they didn't want to renegotiate with MLB, even if it meant saving the city several hundred million dollars. Hmmm. Hmm. Yeah, I don't get it either.

In other news Bowden is looking at Corey Koskie, Christian Guzman, and Vinny Castilla. Either Bowden believes the new owners will not be able to raise the budget as much as I'm thinking (and has been reported) or he's currently getting mushed carrots fed to him by a nurse as he makes decisions by pointing to shapes and colors.
