Let's say it now: The Montreal Expos were winners. True, they never won a pennant, and they never got to play in the Serie Mondiale thanks to an errant fastball in 1981 and a called (player's) strike in 1994. But the Expos won a heckuva lot of games in the 80s and even the 90s. And they even won a playoff series---the 1981 National League Division Series---thanks to some terrific pitching from Steve "Cy" Rogers, who beat Steve "Lefty" Carlton twice in one week, giving up one run in 17 2/3 innings of work. If Major League Baseball had introduced the modern wildcard playoff format in the 1970s, you would have seen half-a-dozen additional playoff appearances from the Expos...and perhaps more celebrations like this one from October 11, 1981.
