  • Face of the franchise

    This question has been asked a lot on the Baseball Fever board, but nothing about Montreal so far. So who is the "Montreal Expos Face of the Franchise"? If you think about another player, pleass tell us why.

    EDIT : Tim Wallach is missing from the list, I know. My mistake. Those who would vote for him please send a message.

    I added Walach so those who want to vote for him can.

    I'm only 20 for me I guess the obvious choice would be Vlad. However, there is one other guy, who I alway liked who I saw as a leader during my lifetime and it's Orlando Cabrera. Gotta show Rusty some love too. He's the Grand Orange, how do you go against him. I'm really looking to hear from some of the older fans, I wonder who they will chose. I'm guna sit back and reflect on my vote before casting it, this is a tough decision.

      Rusty might have been my choice, but I thought he was not here long enough (3 years). I still had trouble writing Pedro in also because of his short stay (4 years).

      BTW, I am one of these older fans

        If you look at longevity and impact, it has to come down to Gary Carter or Steve Rogers.

          I voted Andre Dawson

            A very tough question, Claude.

            Guerrero was probably the best in terms of sheer talent. Carter is the only hall of famer, Raines was involved with the team for so long, he was even on the field for the very last game as an assistant. Staub and Carter were the two who got most involved in the community (Staub got so connected to Montréal in his short time here that when he left for the Mets, he took number 4 in honour of Montréal Canadiens captain Jean Béliveau)... this is a tough call.

            I'm still undecided.
            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

              Hawk Dawson IS the Expos. Or maybe Warren Cromartie.
