I am currently working on a few potential projects to bring professional baseball to Montreal; hopefully one will click. We have some really significant likely backers and partners on this.

If minor pro ball succeeds big-time, and I think it can, we will then be in a better position to try and land an MLB franchise again.
I wish you luck in bringing the Expos back.

I would love to see them in Montreal again. Personally, I don't see it happening without major changes (ie. salary cap, new stadium etc...) and I don't see major league baseball going down that path again.

Then again if the Jets can come back, who's to say the Expos can't too.
