Season Preview

After coming 3 games short in 1993, the young Montreal Expos look stronger than ever. The Atlanta Braves have been move to the National League East division, which could make it difficult for Montreal to win the division, but the League's decision to double the number of teams that qualifies for the playoffs with the arrival of a 3 divisions system and a wild card spot gives Montreal fans plenty of hope to finally watch their team reach post-season.

The starting pitching unit is led by lefty Jeff Fassero, coming from a solid 12 wins season. Ken Hill and Kirk Reuter brings what looks like a solid 2 and 3. Questions marks at the bottom of the rotation with the newly acquired Pedro Martinez and the lefty Butch Henry. In relief, Wetteland and Rojas form an intimidating 8th and 9th inning duo. Heredia can bring a lot of innings as well as being used as a spot starter. The rest of the bullpen is considered average.

8 very young but very talented players will form the Expos everyday lineup. The outfield is the same with Alou, Grissom and Walker looking to contiue their growth as one of the best outfield in baseball. Fletcher is back behind the plate. Cliff Floyd, the highly regarded former first pick, will be the starting 1B. Lansing takes DeShields' spot at 2nd. The rest nof the infield stays the same with Berry at 3rd anc Cordero playing Shortstop. Frazier brings speed from the bench, the young Rondell White is another highly regarded prospect, Lenny Webster can start behind the plate against leftys. The rest of the bench is what you expect from a major league team.
