    The Q: Can the Cubs hold a 6-5 lead with 2 outs and nobody on in the 9th?

    The A: No

    ***********My Rant on Bud Selig***********
    Selig is like a stray pigeon. Pigeons are too self-absorbed to care about anyone else. They poo on people they don't like; they poo on people they don't even know. The only real difference between Selig and a pigeon is that Selig intends to bury our heritage, our traditions, and our culture,

                Nats' Lease Deal Not Done Yet, Linda Cropp, D.C. Council Chair

                http://www.wtopnews.com/?nid=398&sid=644951

                As long as there is anything left for DC Council to vote on this deal is not done.

                  Sadly, that sentence is the key here. And Linda Cropp's husband acted surprised when she was severely booed at the exhibition game against the Mets last year.
                  I will not assimilate into the Angelos Collective. Resistance is not futile.

                    All that has happened here is that MLB has returned the DC Council's volley.

                      A much weaker volley compared to the salvos sent Baseball's way. There is really nothing in the "conditions" Baseball has put forward that will sink the deal. The excess tax is a minor sticking point. As for the council passing legislation contrary to what has been passed, I don't even think that council has the cojones to switch horses in the middle of the stream again.

                      For those of us who have followed this the past couple years, we are in the homestretch. More bumps from opponents? Expect it. Derailment? No.

                      Next order of business is "Who will be the new owner?"

                        I hope you are correct that the excess tax is a minor topic and they just generate hot air on the topic.

                          Not quite- look at this stipulation in the deal: "The document contains a number of conditions, however, including the provision that it does not become legally binding if the city enacts further legislation that is contrary to the stadium funding plan that the council passed."

                          No changes in the funding whatsoever, they have to commit or else they lose the team.

                            Well, Bob, I hope you right, but I still see the glass as half-empty.

                              Bob and others who have seen my posts at the MLB board will say that I
                              am a Chicken Little who is always saying that the sky is falling. Even for me,
                              it seems the glass is finally more than half-full.
