I started following baseball when these guys were arround. But never followed much.
Spike Owen.
Tim Wallach
Andres Galaraga

I miss Roger screaming, BONSOIR ELLE EST PARTIE

I miss Vlady Guererro, Henri RODRIGUEZ AKA OH HENRY, RONDELL WHITE, MOISES ALOU, LARRY WALKER, MARQUIS GRISSOM, PEDRO, DUSTIN HERMANSON, UGETH URBINA

Its a shame that there is no baseball club here anymore, **screw Jeffrey Loria***, it was a great summer past time, now we're forced to watch the JAYS.

If you miss the Expos, what are your memories?

You guys aren't forced to watch anything, it's not exactly like watching the Jays is a bad thing compared to the last few years of the Expos.

But in all seriousness I feel for you guys, you shouldn't have lost you're team the way you did, and I wouldn't be surprised if Montreal still had a team if they had a new stadium downtown.

Don't get me wrong, i like the JAYS and root for them the most often I can. But it's not the same as the EXPOS

Ahh the Expos!!!
I was a wee little kid in 1969 and have fond memories of the lovable team.
From Wills, Wine, Staub, Jones, Laboy, Boccabella, Stoneman to Morton, Bailey, Bateman, Moore, Rogers, Cromartie, Dawson, Reardon, to Martinez, Parrish, Grimsley, Lee to Guerrero, Vidro, Wetteland and a slew of other memories.
I am half heartedly following the Washington club with remaining Spos Cordero, Ayala, Johnson, Hill as well as ex farmhands Balester, Bergmann, Rivera, Casto, Bernadina and O'Connor. Not nearly the same!

funny this thread is here...i was just watching some MLB highlights on TSN and seeing all the great divisonal races this year...i was thinking.."wow, this really really sucks"

Just last week i bought a Gary Carter Cooperstown jersey.

I dont wanna get into my rants again, but the Expos left a void in my life.

**** the Expos! I played baseball for several years and was a big fan at the time (I was 12 when the 93 strike happened) and since that day, my interest went downhill every single day. I switched to soccer in the last 10 years (I lived in Europe in '99 and streaming the NHL was out of question at the time) and I can't wait to see Montreal get an expansion into the MLS.

Viva soccer and **** baseball. I'd rather watch curling nowadays!!

Sorry for the rant, I'm a bit drunk... there goes my nomination for mod.

I was at the rogers cup last week and i was walking outside Jarry stadium. I see a couple walking with the woman wearing an EXPOS cap. There was also an old man, 60ish, passing beside them. The old man says to the lady :" Hey you got a great looking cap there, you know i worked for the Expos for 30 years, this is the biggest mistake that they've done to Montreal those idiots."
I was like, damn, he's weird but he's also right!

makes me sad to see people who devoted their life in something just see it disappear

I miss them too... Let's not forget Felipe Alou, that guy would make a decent team out of nothing and made the most entertaining coach strategies in the league. I don't even know the name of the team in WAS, that's how I've shunned the MLB since then...

Me too.

I remember the late nights of the Expos in Colorado, those great batting fests, with the Expos torturing Bryan Rekar and the Rockies doing likewise to Jim Bullinger. And then, Felipe would put his goon on the mound (Jeff "Achtung!"Juden), and he proceeded to bean one guy, then another, and he'd charge the plate on the second bean, leaving the poor better running for his life as the 6"8 hulk came in with a hot head...

I remember throwing a chocolate bar on the field at the height of OH HENRY mania. The Greatest Flash In The Pan, Ever. The man just looked like your next door Mexican neighbor with his mustache and crooked teeth.

But the greatest memory is only mine.

All the times that as a kid, I mimicked the pitching delivery of one Dennis Martinez. El Presidente. El Perfecto.

I miss them too. They had many great players over the years. I thought they were a truly unique franchise, one that was a bit different from all the rest. This is probably because of the location, colors, logo, and other little things. Too bad that the Expos couldn't hang on like the Twins did. The whole contraction mess looks like a joke now.

If they had built a new stadium downtown the Expos would still be here for sure.

No Larry Walker mention yet? For shame, guys. For shame.

(Unless I'm blind and I missed it...)

Has anybody seen the Expos movie that came out this past weekend? If so, how was it?

The movie in question is called "Un été sans point ni cout sur"...
