Nationals Daily News had the scoop Monday night that Nationals Park will now have the Montreal Expos logo as part of the facade of the 100-level. By including Montreal greats along with Washington greats, Ian Koski noted, it may be "the first in-stadium recognition of the franchise's history in Montreal."
At SB Nation's DC site, Chris Needham argued the Nats shouldn't ignore Montreal, but need to do more to honor the city's baseball first. Most of the fans who voted in a poll there said honoring Expos like Andre Dawson is the right thing to do, but there were also several who said they don't care about the Expos.
There was more discussion Tuesday at Federal Baseball, where Patrick Reddington writes that "the Washington Nationals are doing a good thing here." William Yurasko disagreed in the comments section: "I couldn’t go down to RFK or whatever and watch these guys play here, thus they are not part of D.C. baseball history."
Do the Nats owe it to Montreal to pay tribute to Expos history? Or does that history belong in Montreal?
