FRANCHISE NOTES

     There is speculation that the CFL's Las Vegas Posse, which
drew only 7,438 for Doug Flutie's Calgary Stampeders, may play
their last two games of the season in a test market.  CFL
Commissioner Larry Smith and others met via conference call over
the weekend to discuss the Las Vegas problem.  Posse coach Ron
Meyer said that every indication is that they will finish the
season in Vegas (Baltimore SUN, 10/4)....The Norwich, CT,
Navigators received official word yesterday that they will be the
Yankees' AA-affiliate for at least the next two seasons (HARTFORD
COURANT, 10/4).... Unless Pawtucket officials can replace
"undersized" McCoy Stadium, the Red Sox' AAA team may move, with
Providence and Worcester as possible sites (BOSTON HERALD, 10/3).
