Jack Evans guarantees Metro will say open late for Nats playoff games

The Nationals are inching closer to the playoffs and the great Metro/Nationals Debate of 2012 remains unresolved: Who will pay to keep Metro running late for playoff games that end after midnight on a weeknight?

D.C. Council member Jack Evans (D-Ward 2), who made news last week when he told NewsChannel 8 that Major League Baseball was behind the impasse, is back with more on the situation. This time, he’s guaranteeing that Metro will stay open late.

As our colleague Sarah Kogod noted at the D.C. Sports Bog, Evans’s guarantee didn’t indicate who would actually pay for the service. So the uncertainty that has lurked since at least last month remains.
