Do you remember?

A topic for the hot stove league - should the Washington Nationals have a throwback day to honor the Montreal Expos?
A game where the old uniforms come out - although not in their original city.
Not so fast, my friend.
I think - think, not know - more people would be against it than for it. Based on the responses I get anytime I reference a Nationals player surpassing a former Expo on the franchise leaderboard, I sense D.C. baseball fans aren’t interested one bit in embracing this club’s original roots.
Like it or not, though, the Expos and Nationals officially are considered one continuous franchise by Major League Baseball. This team played for 36 years north of the border, compared to only 14 years in the nation’s capital.
