My rebuff to that would be if a city of that size can only support one team in one sport, that doesn't say too much about the city. And as someone that's been there often, they can support much more then just one. With proper ownership (aka not a Brochu or Loria, but someone that knows how to market effectively to the entire region, and can meet the demands of a baseball public that will demand that consistent efforts are made to win, will do quite nicely. Fans in MOntreal have no problem speaking with their wallet. Give them a reason to spend however, and they'll prove they'll come in droves.
Plus they couldn't play worse then Toronto. :p
