BROCHU SAYS EXPOS TO LOSE $13M THIS SEASON

          Expos President Claude Brochu told the Journal de
     Montreal that the team will lose "more than" C$13M this
     year.  Brochu made his remarks after a meeting of the club's
     ownership group.  The team "may consider" cutting its
     payroll next season; it currently has MLB's lowest payroll
     at "about" C$17M.  The team is "expected to draw a major-
     league-low" 1.4 million spectators this season, including
     300,000 on promotional give-away tickets.  Brochu: "There's
     no hiding it, we're last in everything. We're last in ticket
     sales, parking, television, etc" (GLOBE & MAIL, 9/26).
