Montreal Expos Tribute For 36 seasons, the Montreal Expos were Canada's National League team. Over those years they fluctuated from near-greatness to ineptitude. They had the best record in major league baseball when the 1994 labor stoppage cancelled the season. The team never recovered its fan support after that. Kind of sad to see a team that was once so strongly supported go down the tubes. Here's a tribute to the guys who wore those odd uniforms.

I made a point of watching th Expos' final home game on TV. It was really a heart-breaking site.

People often asked what the 'ELB' logo stood for. The Expos logo really was a stylized 'M'--not 'ELB.' Could have fooled me!

Gary Carter, Bill Spaceman Lee, Andre Dawson, and Le Grande Orange Rusty Staub. Hopefully when the Nationals play the Blue Jays they wear their old Expo uniforms.

Sadly, the Washington Nationals have completely distanced themselves from the team they originated from--the Montreal Expos. The Nationals even went as far as 'un-retiring' retired Expos' numbers. Very classless and insulting, if you ask me.

The legendary Coco Laboy:

After a very good rookie season (at age 30) he injured his knee very badly during off season baseball in Puerto Rico. His leg never fully recovered from the injury and his career was over. Considered one of baseball's strongest men pound-for-pound.

I miss the Expos. They were fun.

Great tribute. I loved them from start to finish. Mack Jones and the Mudcat. Jim Gosger, Clyde Mashore and Don Hahn (who had three twin brothers). Jorgy, Foli and Singleton (who made us forget about Rusty Staub). Mike Marshall. Cash and Perez. Jose Morales and Bombo Rivera. Steve Rogers, Rudy May. Tim Wallach with the great golf swing. Bryn Smith and Zane Smith. Pascual Perez, El Presidente, Casey Candaele, Otis Nixon and Rex Hudler, all off the scrap heap. Hubie Brooks, Herm Winningham and Count Floyd (who almost made us forget Gary Carter). Buck. Chris Nabholz. Oh Henry Rodriguez. I was living in Flin Flon Manitoba in 1993, was watching the late September homestand against the Phillies (on the French CBC with Camille Dube and Claude Raymond) when Wil Cordero hit a game-winning single to win a game and bring the Expos to within a breath of first ... and calculating how long and fast I would have to drive to make it to the Big Owe to catch a game. I decided against it, and that is the one road trip I will always regret for not having made. Thanks for the memories.
