Had the Expos played .500 baseball the rest of the way, they would finished the year 98-64. In short, only an epic collapse would’ve kept the Expos out of the playoffs. Montreal had a young, exciting team on the rise, the second lowest payroll in the game, rising attendance, and postseason revenue all in the future. The extra money would’ve helped the Expos avoid the fire sale of 1995 and who knows what else? The Montreal Expos were the number one casualty of the strike. Absent the strike, the Expos would be alive and well in Montreal.
