    From now until the end of September, I'll be chronicling in real time on Twitter the 1946 season of the International league's Montréal Royals, when Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in professional baseball. Check it out: https://twitter.com/Royals_46season

    I've edited the list. Mark Grudzielanek has been waved by the Indians (that has to be bad for the ego...) and I havent heard that he has found work elsewhere yet. Also, Chad Cordero is back in the majors with the Mariners. So we're still at 25.

    Gus, you might need to start a Claudio Vargas Watch because he was signed as a free agent on June 16th by the Dodgers. He's not on the roster yet, but maybe that is going to happen soon.

    I will do just that. He might be Expo #27 in the bigs. Yes, 27. Beaucuse Scott Strickland is back in MLB. Made his second relief appearance with the Marlins tonight. He had last pitched in the majors in 2005, been in AAA since, with five different organizations. Resillience (SP?) sometimes do pay off!

    Hi guys,

    I just put together my "Still Active Ex-Expo" Team for my blog. I can see there are a few players that I missed, but it was fun to assemble this team. Here is the link: http://kevinglew.wordpress.com/2010/...eal-expo-team/

    The following blog entry from Tom Tango has links to a couple of images charting the trajectory of the careers for the players on the 1994 and 2004 teams:

    Great list but I saw one omission. Jerry White is the first base coach for the Minnesota Twins. He was my centerfielder in Bradenton in 1970. Great guy.

    Yes, the great Jerry White. A very nice man. I still wish he could've came through in the bottom of the ninth on Blue Monday though, but such is life. Thanks for sharing the memories.

    Here's an update with a list of former Expos currently involved in the 2011 playoffs : Dave Martinez (Rays), Tom Foley (Rays), Luis Ayala (Yankees), Brian Schneider (Phillies), Geoff Blum (Diamondbacks), Mike Maddux (Rangers), Endy Chavez (Rangers)... forgive me for adding Cliff Lee (Phillies) even if he did not quite play for Montreal.

    Am I the only one who enjoyed seeing Brian Schneider score the run that eliminated the Braves from the playoffs? I still resent the Braves after all those years for beating the Expos over and over during the last ten years of the franchise. Maybe after they move again (considering their history, that seems unavoidable (SP?), I will let bygones be bygones with them. But I have to say, I enjoyed watching their September collapse, and the fact that they were eliminated by a former Expo made it a little extra special.
