BROCHU SAYS EXPOS TO LOSE $13M THIS SEASON
Published September 26, 1997
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).
