Sox Will Play Two 2016 Exhibitions Vs. Jays In Montreal

On Friday, the Red Sox will officially announce that they will play two exhibition games next Spring in Montreal against the Blue Jays. The games will be April 1 and April 2—just before the start of the regular season on April 4th in Cleveland. Chatter about major league baseball returning to Quebec's biggest city has intensified with the apparent imprimatur of new MLB commissioner Rob Manfred, "The Montreal market was a major league market and my own opinion is that it could be a major league market again." Here's hoping the pathetic fans of Tampa (who average around 16,000 per game) will lose the Rays franchise to Canada.
