My favorite rumor

BIZARRO WORLD - The Boston Expos host the New York Mets in their home opener, 2003. - Elsa

This would have been a blast:

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2002 -- The Daily News has learned that there have been preliminary discussions at the highest levels of baseball about having the MLB-owned Montreal Expos share Fenway Park with the Red Sox next season. According to a source with knowledge of the discussions, the Expos would play in Fenway for one year while MLB continues to search for a buyer - and a suitable permanent location for them. Under the discussed deal, MLB would pay the Red Sox rent for the Expos as Fenway tenants.

Larry Lucchino quickly shot down the rumor, and nothing came of it, of course. But for a fleeting moment one October afternoon, this Cub fan living in Boston was elated at the possibility. But it's likely no one was more excited by the prospect of National League baseball at Fenway Park than the Boston Braves Boosters.
