While it's certainy nice that the damn-near contracted Montreal Expos have gotten off to a not-terrible start (13-8, 1st place in the nobody-wants-it NL East), the sports media's current round of anti-Selig gloating seems a bit premature, considering that attendance, the number that really matters, is down 27% from last year's already deflated numbers. The team is generally drawing about 4500 fans to its non-Opening Day, non-Mets games, and while that may pick up a bit if the team continues to win (which they won't), it's still absolutely nowhere near what a club needs to draw to survive, forget succeed.
