  • One of the two teams in serious financial trouble is Montreal. Over the last few years, it's been a struggle for the Expos to get non-negative attendance figures. The resolution the MLB has been batting around is to contract the National League by two teams, or just selling the franchises to a city that really [thinks it] wants a baseball team (like Washington, DC).

    I forget who the other team is. Florida comes to mind, but I think that the Marlins were the 3rd out of 4 troubled teams.

    • I don't think Montreal is in any danger of running out of money - being owned and run by the other 29 owners.

      The "surprise" team is supposedly Arizona is terms of the team not being able to meet payroll and the team in huge amounts of debt is supposedly Tampa Bay.
