    good. he was a big time player for the cubs, but he did more for the expos than he did for the cubs. he had his best season as a cub, but the bulk of his career he was an expo. that team should be remembered in the hof, and this will help out tremendously in that effort.

    You could look at it that way, but this pales in comparison to most things. The Expos need to be represented in the hall more than the Cubs by the mere fact that the Cubs still exist.

    I'm still not sure the Expos ever existed, and I used to watch their games.

    That one was terrible. Why did they always pick the strike years to play their best baseball?

    What was the year of the big strike? Like '94-'95? The Expos were in First place Big time in their division right? Then the season ended. Oh man, that had to suck for the French-Canadians.....oh wait, they never cared.

    Still though, that had to blow for them. And, ESPN had that "computer-pick 'em" and they won the simulated World Series - hey, they had that going for them though..... computers loved that team.

    1994 World Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    They also won their division back in the strike-shortened 1981 season.

    Ok, since we're on the subject of the Expos, what is up with that logo? I've always tried to figure out what it is exactly. Maybe someone can give some different perspective of it but I always thought it looked like it said "elb." But now that I look at it again, I guess it could look like a capital M, which makes more sense.

    I can understand your feelings. As a White Sox fan I was not happy when Carlton Fisk entered the Hall with a Red Sox cap...and worse...he chose to do that! That hurt!

    I know everyone on the east coast forgot he played for the White Sox...but he was the face of our franchise for a decade...and played more games in White Sox than he did Red Sox! Oh well...I got over it and I still think of him being a great ambassador of the game!

    Out of the 2 of us, only one of us has ever lost/chipped a tooth. My face isn't made of glass.

    According to wikipedia it is a stylized M for Montreal that also contains a red "e" for expos and blue "b" for baseball.
