The franchise was based in Montreal and known as the Expos (after Expo 67, the world’s fair held in the city in 1967) for the first 36 years of its existence. Founded in 1969, the Expos were one of four teams to join Major League Baseball (MLB) that year. Montreal lost 110 games in its first season to finish at the bottom of its division and tie for the worst record in the major leagues (with the San Diego Padres), and the team continued to finish in the lower half of the NL East throughout its first decade. In 1979, under the guidance of future Hall of Fame manager Dick Williams, the Expos posted their first winning season and finished only two games out of a division title. Behind star players such as catcher Gary Carter and outfielders Andre Dawson and Tim Raines, the Expos advanced to their first postseason appearance two years later during the strike-shortened 1981 season. That year they won their first-round series against the Philadelphia Phillies before losing to the eventual world champion Los Angeles Dodgers as the result of a ninth-inning home run in the deciding fifth game of the NL Championship Series.

For the remainder of the 1980s, Montreal fielded teams that usually finished their seasons with winning percentages within a few games of .500. In the early 1990s the Expos amassed a roster filled with young talent—such as outfielders Moises Alou, Marquis Grissom, and Larry Walker, as well as pitcher Pedro Martínez—that led to a rapid ascent toward the top of the divisional standings. After finishing the 1993 season three games out of first place, Montreal posted a league-best 74–40 record in 1994 only to have the remainder of the season canceled over a labor dispute, cutting short the team’s best chance to win a division title. By the time MLB renewed play in 1995, Montreal had lost much of its young talent through free agency or trades in the off-season, and the Expos ended the year at the bottom of the NL East standings.

In 1996 the team called up future All-Star slugger Vladimir Guerrero, but his late-season addition was not enough to push the Expos past the Atlanta Braves in their division. The Expos then began a prolonged period of subpar play that coincided with a decrease in home game attendance and complaints by team ownership about the Expos’ home stadium, which led to questions about the stability of the team’s tenure in Montreal.

In 2001 the Expos were one of two teams (with the Minnesota Twins) that commissioner Bud Selig proposed for elimination from the major leagues in an effort to raise revenue throughout the sport. The team was then sold to MLB in 2002. A Minnesota court order effectively ended the threat of contraction in the major leagues, so MLB pursued relocating the franchise. The Expos played a handful of their “home” games in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in 2003 and 2004 while MLB courted suitors from different North American cities. In 2005 the Expos moved to Washington, D.C., and became known as the Nationals.

Rusty Staub was traded by the Expos to the Mets for Tim Foli, Mike Jorgensen and Ken Singleton. He gave a valiant effort in the 1973 World Series (.423 AVG, 1 HR 6 RBI). Career-wise, he was an RBI machine (1,466) and hit 292 HRs. He was a 6x All-Star.

One of the coolest parts of Camden Yards is Eutaw Street, which sits beyond the outfield wall and is covered in 100 plaques marking every home run that has landed there since the stadium opened.

Unfortunately for O's fans, the longest doesn't belong to an Orioles player. Instead, the title is held by the Expos' Henry Rodriguez, who hit a 443-foot blast on June 17, 1997.

Following an injury to minor league outfield prospect Larry Walker playing Winter ball, the Expos shifted Brooks to right field for the 1988 season. Despite his disappointment with the situation, Brooks responded with one of his best offensive seasons, batting .279 with 90 RBIs and a career-high 20 home runs. He spent one more season in right field for the Expos before departing via free agency.

In a 12-season career, Morales was a .287 hitter (375-for-1305) with 26 home runs and 207 RBI, including 126 runs, 68 doubles and six triples, hitting .300 five times overall. He struck out in only 13% of his plate appearances (182-for-1305), a testament to his skill as a contact hitter.

Foote made his major league debut with the Expos on September 14, 1973 at the age of 21. He was highly regarded as a rookie by then-Expos manager Gene Mauch, who called him, "The next Johnny Bench". Foote replaced John Boccabella as the Expos catcher in 1974, and seemed to bear out Mauch's prediction for greatness, when he hit for a .262 batting average along with 11 home runs, 60 runs batted in, a .414 slugging percentage and a league-leading 12 sacrifice flies in 125 games. He also led National League catchers with 83 assists. Foote was named to the 1974 Topps All-Star Rookie Team.
As a measure of how highly regarded Foote was as a catcher, in 1975, the Expos shifted future Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter to right field. Foote's performance suffered in his sophomore year of 1975, as his batting average fell dramatically to .195 in 118 games. In September, Foote suffered a torn cartilage and underwent knee surgery after the season ended. In 1976, he split catching duties with Gary Carter and by the 1977 season, Carter had replaced Foote as the Expos' starting catcher.
On June 15, 1977, the Expos traded Foote along with Dan Warthen to the Philadelphia Phillies for Wayne Twitchell and Tim Blackwell.
