The Montreal Expos 1969-2004

Montreal has a rich baseball tradition, from Jackie Robinson to the great teams of the late 1970's.   

The Expos gave us Tim Raines, Gary Carter, Andre Dawson, Gary Walker, Vladimir Guerrero and lots of others.    

Add a perfect game by Dennis Martinez in 1991.

Between 1979 and 1981, the Expos had great teams in the pre-wild card era.  

In 1979 and 1980 they came in second in the NL East.  In fact, they were in contention until the last series of the season.   

In 1981, they lost the NLCS to the LA Dodgers.    

All of those 3 teams, Pittsburgh in 1979, Philadelphia in 1980 and LA in 1981, went on to win the World Series!  

In 1994, they had the best record in baseball before the strike killed the season and the Expos.     They moved to Washington after the 2004 season.

MLB-TV ran a documentary recently on the story of the Expos.  It was fun to catch up and enjoy some of those great uniforms and caps.
