  • Who's left and where

    I've been meaning to do this for a while. Make a list of all the former Expos who are still active in the Majors and wich team there on. We can keep the list updated to help us keep track of who's left until one day, there shall be none. I didn't have time to go trough all the rosters, but I think I've got most of them. When you spot names that have been left out, just post them, I will update the list.

    Les Expos


    Seattle: Endy Chavez, Roy Corcoran, Miguel Batista

    Mets: Brian Schneider, Livan Hernandez, Fernando Tatis

    Twins: Brendan Harris, Orlando Cabrera, Jon Rausch, Carl Pavano

    Angels: Vladimir Guerrero, Juan Rivera, Maicer Izturis

    Braves: Javier Vasquez, Ryan Church

    Blue Jays: Scott Downs, Michael Barrett

    Natinals: Livan Hernandez

    Indians: Jamey Carroll, Matt Herges, Tomo Okha

    Phillies: Matt Stairs, Pedro Martinez

    Giants: Randy Johnson

    White Sox: Bartolo Colon

    Padres: Cliff Floyd, Shawn Hill

    Rays: Randy Choate

    Cubs: Milton Bradley

    Royals: Bruce Chen

    Dodgers: Guillermo Mota, Claudio Vargas

      Are you including Expos prospects that never played for them? If so, then Red Sox Jason Bay, Jeff Bailey, Reds Brandon Phillips, and Indians Cliff Lee and Grady Seizmore can go on.

        Michael Barrett

        When I went to a meet and greet with the Blue Jays a few months ago, I got Barrett to sign a photo of himself with the Expos. He thought it was great, and was bragging to Aaron Hill about how he was "stylin" back in the day...

            Including all the prospects would make the list longer than it is, but I'm looking for the players who played with the team.

              Right on cue, just as I posted the list last week, Dan Shulman gave Steve Phillips homework during last monday's ESPN baseball game. He asked him who, in his mind, will end up as the last Expo standing. It's a question I've asked myself and I'm curious to see who Phillips will come up with. I'm guessing he will answer on tomorrow's game.

              It's pretty much a guessing game. Most of the guys are in their 30's. Harris, Izturis and Hill, at least, are in their late 20's, so the might have an edge, but their all role players who's career's could be over at any point. I'll say Izturis, why not?

              Least likely to be the last Expo standing? Probably Randy Johnson.

                I'm adding another name to the list. Bruce Chen, who pitched in 15 games for the Expos in 2002 is back in the majors, with the KC Royals.

                    All true. I even saw Okha pitch not long ago, but just forgot to add him. Now that is kind of weak...

                    Thanks for the help, Buzzy!

                      Counting up your list that's 32 former Expos that are still active in MLB. At four and a half seasons since the Expos played their last game, I'd call that total surprisingly high!

                        He's currently stuck on the long term DL, but Chad Cordero could end up as the last Expo standing. He's in Seattle's system right now. If he can get healthy, he's talented enough to pitch for a long time and he was only 22 in 2004.

                            Just added Mr. Vargas. I'll add Pedro when he actually starts pitching. Don't know how long he's gonna last, so I'll try to make it quick.

                            The number is now 33. And I know Luis Ayala isn't in Minnesota anymore, but he's still pitching, saw him the other day. Just can't remember where...
