Cropp circles and other conspiracy theories

I'm sure you have all heard that MLB basically said they'll start entertaining offers as soon as Jan 1 comes, if DC doesn't backpedal. Vegas is already expressing their intention. Will Mark Warner be a hero and bring baseball to VA? Probably not.

WTOP political commentator Mark Plotkin did a chat this morning for the Post that resonates with me. Basically, Cropp is taking a naive gamble by playing chicken with a bunch of bullies that would rather crash the car than be the one to yield. He's got a very detailed analysis that I encourage people to read, especially if you're still optimistic.

I wonder if Angelos is whispering in Cropp's ear ;-)

The Post is also reporting that the Nats have shut down promotional operations, etc. for the time being.

My current analogy:

Linda Cropp: Washington
Harry Frazee: Boston
