Nationals rewards should not be expos. Collection reward? Expo. TA3 reward? Expo. I think Andre Dawson and Vlad should be in the game as headliners or WS rewards, but they shouldn’t be rewards for doing stuff for the nationals. I want a good Zimmerman or a flashback Bryce Harper, Stephen Strasburg, or Max Scherzer, not guys who were never Nationals.
I also understand that the TA3 guys were all legends and not flashbacks, so it would be tough to find somebody good and retired from the Nationals, considering they sucked for a lot of their existence and have only been around since 2005.
But anyways, I think Vlad and Dawson have their place in this game, I’m just tired of nationals rewards being non-nationals.

The Face of the Franchise really should be Jeffrey Loria just to twist the knife...

I'm assuming you do know this but just double checking. You know the Expos became the Nationals?

Also, it's a legend series. No flashbacks.
Name me a legend National who wasn't an Expo... I'll wait

Vidro is an expo. Baerga an Indian. Sledge? Lol

I guess you could use Soriano for his one great year he had.

Vidro played 8 years in Montreal and started his career there. Sledge....hardly worthy of being in the game. 4 year career....first year was 2004 with the Expos.

Baerga...is a stretch and a half. Played his very last year as a Nat so technically could qualify as a non-expo Legend but be hard to see him as anything outside of a CLE card.

SDS

The Expos are cooler than the Nats anyway.

Also, Alfonso Soriano, but he’s not in the game

Yeah, I know, but my point was that I’m a Nationals fan, not an Expos fan so I want to be rewarded with Nationals, not Expos

What kind of numbers did Brad Wilkerson have? Don’t know much about him except seeing him play against my Bravos back in the day.
Who was the catcher back in the day? May have also played with the cubbies at one point? Barrett?

Edit: Barrett couldn’t really get a good Expos card. He won his silver slugger with the cubs, not Montreal.

It's the same franchise. It's like saying I'm an Atlanta Braves fan, not a Milwaukee Braves fan.

What about the people that were Expos fans and now are Nationals fans though? Don't they deserve some of the legends they enjoyed watching too?

agree to disagree, personally i think Expos fans should be able to grind for a card instead of having to pay hundreds of thousands of stubs for a card if they can't get to WS.
