Just a week or so ago was the 10th anniversary of the final game the Expos played in Montreal. There are many reasons the team wound up leaving town for Washington, starting with the strike/lockout of 1994 when the Expos had the best record in the Majors only to see the season shut down in mid-August and the World Series cancelled. You can throw in lack of post-season appearances (one) and a relatively fan unfriendly stadium in the wrong part of town and an ownership at the end that wasnt committed or couldnt afford to keep a very good team together. But I discovered something over the weekend that might have profoundly changed the history, and ultimately the future, of the Expos franchise: the 1971 draft. In 1971, the Chicago White Sox lead off the draft by selecting catcher Danny Goodwin, who never really panned out at the Big League level. The Expos, picking fourth overall, chose a short stop out of Tennessee by the name of Condredge Holloway. Condredge was not only an outstanding baseball player, a sport he actually preferred, but also an excellent quarterback. His parents were committed to seeing him get an education and his mother refused to sign his contract with the Expos. Condredge went on to play baseball and football at the University of Tennessee, where he excelled at both sports. He was actually the first African American to play quarterback in the Southeast Conference. Holloway ultimately chose football for his pro career and after being drafted by New England as a defencive back, opted for the CFL and landed in Ottawa. Later on, he was named Most Outstanding Player in the CFL with the Argos in 1982 and along with Joe Barnes, helped the Argos to a drought-ending Grey Cup victory in that 82 season. In 1999, he was named to the CFL Hall of Fame. On more than one occasion, Holloway spoke of what might have happened if he had chosen baseball and favourably compared himself to Brewers Hall of Fame shortstop, Robin Yount. The Expos would never know, but to compound their problems with that first round in 1971, fire-balling lefty Frank Tanana went 13th overall to the Angels and left field slugger and future Hall of Famer Jim Rice went 15th to the Boston Red Sox. So, Montreal effectively struck out in the first round. But that wasnt the end of it. In the second round of the 1971 draft, the Expos chose left hand starting pitcher Dan Warthen. His career flamed out pretty quickly. Warthen went 12-21 with a 4.31 ERA and his days in the Majors were over at 25, though he has gone on to be a successful pitching coach and his currently with the New York Mets, who may have the best flock of young arms in the business. But back to the matter at hand. Kansas City had the number five pick in that second round in 71 and chose a young shortstop who would later become a Hall of Fame 3B in George Brett, one of the greatest pure hitters the game has ever seen. Right after that selection, the Phillies chose another shortstop, who like Brett would become a Hall of Fame third baseman and Expos Killer Mike Schmidt, who had tremendous power and played gold glove defence at the hot corner. So lets recap. The Expos ended up with little or nothing in Holloway and Warthen, and could have had two of the following four; Frank Tanana, Jim Rice, George Brett or Mike Schmidt. Three of those four turned into Hall of Famers. Schmidt won a World Series over Brett and the Royals in 1980 and Brett and company beat St. Louis in the 1985 Fall Classic. You cant tell me with Rice and Brett or Rice and Schmidt, the Expos wouldnt have won at least one World Series and that could have changed the course of history for Canadas first Major League team. When you look at the current Kansas City Royals who are just two victories away from going to their second World Series, you can pinpoint a three year span of drafting as being instrumental to their success. In 2005, they took 3B Alex Gordon, now their left fielder number two overall. In 2007, 3B Mike Moustakas went number two and in 2008 1B Eric Hosmer went number three overall. Rising prospect Christian Colon went number four in Round 1 in 2010 and lefty reliever Brandon Finnegan, whos in their pen right now, was taken at number 14 this year. The Philadelphia Inquirer made an interesting point the other day. A Major League all-star game hasnt been played in a multipurpose stadium since it was held at the old Veterans Stadium in 1996. So you can basically count out Rogers Centre at least until the Argos are gone and natural grass is finally installed. This season, former Blue Jays utility outfielder Rajai Davis stole 35 bases for the Tigers. Thats more than they stole as an entire team in 2013. Corey Knebel Jersey . The league announced Thursday that Tom Higgins is leaving that post effective immediately. Orlando Arcia Jersey . Marek Hamsik, who had earlier missed a penalty, headed Napoli in front in the 23rd minute and Pandev added a second goal five minutes from halftime. Alessandro Matri got Juventus back into the game just after the break but Pandev was on hand to score again in the 68th. http://www.baseballbrewersofficial.com/.C. -- Martin Kaymer set a U. Wily Peralta Jersey . According to a report from ESPN, sources said Manuels college coach Jimbo Fisher told teams he didnt think Manuel had the tools to be an NFL starter. Jonathan Villar Jersey . Brooks replaces right-hander Yordano Ventura, who left his last outing with a sore elbow. Ventura is expected to miss one start. Brooks has made one relief appearance for the Royals this season, allowing six runs in two innings in a May 3 loss to Detroit.The last time the Canadian and American mens hockey teams met at the Olympics, Sidney Crosbys golden goal electrified the entire country. This time, the two nations meet not for the gold medal, but for a chance at it. Listen on TSN Radio as Canada takes on the United States in the semifinals at 11:30am et/8:30am pt. For Canada, the semifinal offers another chance for their talented forward corps to break out of their goal-scoring funk. Of the 13 goals Canada has scored at the 2014 Games, only six have come from their forwards. Jeff Carter of the Los Angeles Kings remains the only Canadian forward to have scored multiple goals in Sochi, having notched a natural hat trick against Austria in the preliminary round. The United States, meanwhile, has seen their offence click on all cylinders – scoring a tournament-high 20 goals through the quarter-final round. Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel leads all Olympians with eight points and five goals through four games. He and his linemates – San Jose Sharks centre Joe Pavelski and his Toronto teammate James van Riemsdyk – have combined for 18 points so far at the tournament. The American attack has been the opposite of the Canadians thus far at the Games, with all but three of their goals coming from their forward ranks. While the Americans are expected to ice the same lineup they have employed throughout the Games thus far, injuries have necessitated a change up front for the Canadians.dddddddddddd New York Islanders captain John Tavares suffered a knee injury that put an end to his NHL season in Canadas quarterfinal game against Latvia. He will be replaced up front by Matt Duchene. Canadas Carey Price goes into the game with a .941 save precentage while Jonathan Quick is not far behind at .935. Canada has won three of their four meetings with the United States since the NHL began full Olympic participation in 1998. The United States only win came in the preliminary round of the 2010 Games. Both teams enter the semifinals at the Sochi Olympics with unbeaten records after finishing atop their respective qualifying groups. Both teams, however, have been pushed to the limit at least once by their opposition. T.J. Oshie earned his Sochi celebrity by carrying the U.S. to a shootout win over Russia in the preliminary round. Canada, meanwhile, needed overtime to beat Finland in their Group B matchup. The winner of the Canada-U.S. matchup will meet the winner of Fridays other semifinal between Sweden and Finland in Sundays gold medal game.
