Easily one of the most highly touted players in baseball history, Vladimir Guerrero did not disappoint when he was finally called up to the Majors.  Guerrero actually goes down as the man who will have the most home runs as a Montreal Expo (234) with a Slugging Percentage well over .500.  He would also lead the NL in Hits in 2002 as well as Total Bases.
Sadly for Expos fans, Vladimir Guerrero would win the MVP the year after he signed a free agent deal with the Anaheim Angels.  This was the last major star who would bail on Montreal due to budget constraints.
