    The Ex-Expos Thread

    The acquisition of Jamey Carroll keeps alive the long-standing Twins tradition of signing members of the last Expos team to take the field in 2004. An interesting book could probably be written about that team and season - as they were run by the league and split their home schedule between Montreal and Puerto Rico. For the record, here are players who donned the Twins pinstripes after playing for the 2004 Expos:

    Jamey Carroll

    Orlando Cabrera

    Tony Batista

    Brendan Harris

    Livan Hernandez

    Luis Ayala

    Jon Rauch

    Given the number of teams those journeyman players have played for, that's probably less significant than it may seem. I disliked everything about that Expos franchise - that Nationals for all their faults are still a much better situation for an MLB team.

    Les français utilisent une variété de mots différents, à des moments différents, ils peuvent donc secrètement se moquer de personnes anglophones. Surtout des Américains. Et ils se demandent pourquoi les gens ne sont pas comme eux ... en fait il y a beaucoup de raison.

    Shout out for Rusty Staub! Vive Le Gran Orange! Oh, and for Rock Raines, The Hawk, and the late, great Gary Carter. Then there's Pedro and Randy...
