We are just two days a few days before the official beginning of the 2014 season for the Toronto Blue Jays, but there will be a very real feeling to the final two exhibition games of the spring. That’s because baseball is back in Montreal, and the fans are ecstatic, and according to Jon Morosi of Fox Sports, they are coming out in droves.
Most recent estimate on gate for Mets-Jays in Montreal: 45,000 tickets tonight, 50,000 tomorrow. Wow.

Feel free to chat among yourselves about the game, how the Blue Jays look, and how Olympic Stadium is holding up. We’ll try to add in detail of the game as things happen, keeping any late comers abreast of the details.
Here’s a topic to get everyone started for the evening:
“Should Major League Baseball bring a team to Montreal and can the city sustain a franchise this time around?”
Enjoy the game folks!
