Franchise Relocation Newsbeat

Time is ripe for MLB to make decisions about return to Montreal | FOX Sports

Of course they would. I bet they would also like all the public financing information private as well.

Certainly, MLB would prefer that sensitive communications about securing a franchise remain confidential. But there’s an added layer of legitimacy to be gained through public vetting, even if the information put forward is (at least initially) short on particulars. The transparency will become more important as the probable request for public financing nears. (Of note, Quebec’s provincial government recently contributed a reported $200 million for a new hockey arena in Quebec City.)
