The Expos haven't played a regular season contest since 2004, but that doesn't mean that Montreal doesn't want baseball back.

And their work as good samaritans, with a hurricane bearing down on a baseball-hosting chunk of the United States, seems like a perfect way to make it happen, at least temporarily.

With Hurricane Irma set to hit Florida, and the Rays and Yankees scheduled to play three games in Tampa Bay starting Monday, you'd think Major League Baseball would've jumped at Montreal's offer to host the series in a neutral site.

Well, guess not. A few weeks after offering to ​host the Astros, Montreal offered to host the games at Olympic Stadium with the funds going to the victims of the hurricane, but the MLB declined the offer once more.
