Remembering the Montreal Expos


Before there was the World Champion Washington Nationals, there was the Montreal Expos.  This past summer, while broadcasting games for the Hartford Yard Goats, I caught up with two former teammates on the Expos, Lee Stevens and Mike Mordecai.   At the time, Stevens was the hitting instructor for the Yard Goats and Mordecai was the manager of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

The two not only recalled their time as teammates of the Expos but speculated on a major league baseball franchise returning to Montreal.  An effort is underway to bring a team back to that city, with MLB even giving the green light to a franchise - in this case Tampa Bay - splitting its home season between Tampa Bay and Montreal.  Although logistically, such a duel franchise could be a nightmare, Tampa Bay owner Stuart Sternberg is not ruling out such a move.
