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 (184) and Doubles (42) 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, when they knew would not be able to afford him.  Galarraga had 906 Hits, 115 Home Runs and batted .269 for Montreal.
