"Barring a dramatic increase in their popularity this summer," the Expos will be based in the U.S. next season, according to Marty York in today's Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. Sources said yesterday that Expo ownership "has already begun" preparations to sell or move the team and has started investigating sites in Nashville, Charlotte, Orlando, Buffalo and Northern VA. According to Expos GM Kevin Malone, the team needs to average between 25,000 and 30,000 fans for the rest of the home games this season in order to stay in Montreal for '96 (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 5/26).
