I'm not sure what to think of this:
Normally, I would think this is just another ploy in trying to get a stadium deal but the team wanting a new stadium has been completely driven home. The threat of letting Cabrera go elsewhere wouldn't seem to be necessary to get their point across - the point has been made.
Maybe it's still the attitude situation. Maybe they are getting ready to dust off the old Montreal procedures. Maybe it's just someone talking out of turn or possibly it's something else. We will watch this and see what develops, if anything.
