Expos apologist forgets that it was the Expos that made the hideous Colon deal which is just as responsible for the bottoming out as anything else. Oh and Omar's terrible drafting after the first round. Lots of 1st rounders go bust but usually teams find mid round gems. Not under the late term Expos.
I'm sure I could look this up but I prefer to just ramble on and say I am certain there were times in 08 and 09 when an overmatched Nats team walked into Philly or SF or anywhere really and had their asses handed to them. Where is was so patently obvious which was the better team. The games not even close. Well, payback's a bitch Chicago.
