The Ryans' group purchased the PCL Edmonton Trappers franchise in 2003 with the intention of moving the team to Round Rock after the 2004 season. At that time, the Trappers were affiliated with the Montreal Expos. The Express group wanted to maintain its affiliation with the Astros at the Round Rock site; therefore, the Trappers/Express franchise exchanged major league affiliates after the 2004 season with the New Orleans Zephyrs. (Several weeks after this switch, the Expos announced their move to Washington, D.C. as the Washington Nationals.) In terms of players on the roster, the 2005 Round Rock Express contained a mixture of players from the 2004 New Orleans Zephyrs (players that stayed at AAA) and the 2004 Round Rock Express (promoted from AA); the 2004 Edmonton Trappers players were either playing as New Orleans Zephyrs or Washington Nationals.
