      The list above probably needs to be reviewed and updated as it's been almost 2 years since the only posted addition. In any event, former Expos 3rd baseman Bob Bailey has passed away.

        Bob Bailey, who passed away in early January 2018 at age 75 was a Pittsburgh Pirates' bonus baby, but he paid his best dividends to other teams, particularly the Expos. he was an Expo between their expansion year of 1969 and 1975. Defensively, he was an above average third baseman, Three years stood out for Bailey, offensively. 1970: 28 HR, 84 RBI, .287 b. avg.; 1973: 26 HR, 86 RBI, .273 b. avg; 1974: 20 HR, 73 RBI, ..280 b.avg. overall he was a big leaguer for 17 years 1962 to 1978, debuting a month before his 20th birthday. In his final year he only played 43 games for the '78 Boston Red Sox and contributed poorly with just 4 HR and 8 RBI, with a .191 b. avg. on a team that could have used more solid production off the bench in their year-long battle wih the Yankees for the A.L. East crown. His 17 seasons, 1931 games played, 1.564 hits, 189 home runs and .257 batting average mark him as an a solid, if not spectacular contributor to 1960s and 1970s teams. Bailey played for the Pirates, dodgers, Expos, Reds, and Red sox (in that order) and he was a strong contributor off the bench to the 1976 World's Championship Cincinnati Reds team where he hit .298 in a limited role (69 games, 124 at bats).

              Expo fans, along with Astro, Met, and Tiger fans should always remember Rusty, one of the most popular players of his time.
