Around here you either liked the Expos or Bluejays. I was an Expos fan, and a huge Gary Carter fan. It was pretty disapointing when they let him go to the Mets.

Gary Carter was hard not to like (whether you liked the Expos or Mets or not). This was kind of shocking to me, always is when someone who is a comtemporary dies. Another reminder of the reality of our mortality. RIP Mr. Carter.

The Expos had Carter, Dawson, Raines and Wallach....the latter three I followed when they played Triple A for the old Denver Bears....never understood why baseball didn't catch on in Montreal....Carter to me would be Mr Expo if I had to pick one....

Very sad to hear of his passing. That youthful exuberance that earned him the nickname "The Kid" was a big reason he was a favorite of mine growing up.

We were all Expos fans here in NS and all of the fights in minor ball were over who got to wear 8 for Carter and 10 for Dawson.
