One of the most exciting players of the 1980’s, Tim Raines would lead the National League in Stolen Bases four years in a row and would make seven consecutive All Star Games.  “The Rock” would also win a Batting Title and On Base Percentage Title in 1986 and would make the top ten in MVP voting three times.  On his 15th and final year on the ballot, Raines would finally enter the Baseball Hall of Fame, and did so waering the cap of the Expos.

One of the more underrated players in the1 1980’s, Tim Wallach would make five All Star Games on the strength of his reputation with the respective National League Managers who selected him.  In addition to his five All Star appearances, Wallach would earn a pair of Silver Slugger Awards and three Gold Gloves.

As of this writing, Ryan Zimmerman has completed fifteen years in Major League Baseball, all of which have been with the Washington Nationals.  He has been a constant for the team providing power and a solid batting average.  While Zimmerman will never be considered an elite player he has been better than the average Major League Baseball player for years and could add to his two Silver Sluggers, one Gold Glove and two All-Star Game appearances and climb even higher than his already strong ranking.Zimmerman was a member of the Washington Nationals 2019 World Series Championship Team.

Max Scherzer has only been with the Washington Nationals for four seasons and he did something that we thought either Bryce Harper or Stephen Strasburg would do first.  He is the first player who competed in Washington to be in the top five in franchise history.

The greatest Pitcher to come out of Nicaragua, Dennis Martinez had the best years of his long career with the Montreal Expos where he would be a three time All Star and won the ERA title in 1991.  Martinez would finish fifth in National League Cy Young voting that season.

Stephen Strasburg
In the last fifty years, Stephen Strasburg was about as highly prized a pitching prospect as there was.  Strasburg has famously had his pitch count watched (even keeping him out of the 2012 Playoffs) after coming off of rehab of Tommy John surgery and the overall protection of the former number one draft pick might be the most of any player in baseball history.The perceived coddling has paid off as Strasburg has represented Washington in three All-Star Games and was a second runner-up for the National League Cy Young (losing to his teammate, Max Scherzer) in 2017 where he was the league leader in FIP.  To date, he has given the Nationals five 15 Win seasons, and last season he set a career-high of 18 Wins, which was enough to lead the American League.  Strasburg would take the Nationals all the way to a World Series Championship, and he won five games in the post-season while also securing the World Series MVP.It sounds like the Nationals had it right all along!

With his blazing speed Marquis Grissom was a demon on the basepaths, twice leading the National League in Stolen Bases as an Expo.  Grissom was also quite adept utilizing his speed patrolling the outfield, as he would earn two of his four Gold Gloves in Montreal.

The first player on this list who played for “both the Expos and the Nationals”, Livan Hernandez had his best regular seasons for this franchise.  A World Series MVP with the Marlins in 1997, Hernandez would become a two time All Star and a bona fide innings eater for the Expos/Nationals.

Gio Gonzalez had a great first season with the Washington Nationals in 2012 where he would become the second runner up for the National League Cy Young Award and lead the league in Wins, FIP and SO/9.  While he has not yet replicated that All Star season he has been earned his rotation spot earning double digit Wins every year since joining the Nats.  In 2017 he would again finish in the top ten in Cy Young voting (sixth) while going 15 and 9 with a 2.96 ERA.  Gonzalez would be traded in 2018 to the Milwaukee Brewers but his run in Washington was strong and he deserves this high spot on the list.

Prior to becoming a superstar and MVP in Colorado, Larry Walker was a very good player with the Montreal Expos who would become the only Canadian to win the franchise’s MVP award.  Walker would make an All Star Game, and win two Gold Gloves and one Silver Slugger as an Expo.

Spending his first six seasons of his MLB career with the Montreal Expos, Javier Vazquez was a good power pitcher who struck out 200 batters twice as an Expo.  Vazquez never quite lived up to his billing as he gave up far too many hits, but was a better than most starting pitcher during his tenure in Montreal.

Rusty Staub (Le Grande Orange) was an original Montreal Expo and had such great popularity over those three seasons he played there (though he did come back for a cup of coffee late in his career) that the team retired his number.  Staub would be an All Star those three years and would put up an On Base Percentage over .400 as an Expo.

Like Larry Walker, Andres Galarraga would find himself a major star with the Colorado Rockies, but it as a Montreal Expo where he first proved he was a better than average Major League Baseball player.  “The Big Cat” was an All Star in 1988 and would lead the NL in Hits that year.  Throw in a Silver Slugger and two Gold Gloves, and it is easy to see why the Expos fans were upset to lose another budding star.
