Lament For Larry.

The Colorado Rockies are off to the World Series. Too bad they couldn't have done this a few years ago when Larry Walker was still with the team. Of course the real letdown for Walker and Canadian baseball fans was the 1994 baseball strike, which occured while Walker was with the Montreal Expos. There was a very good chance that year that Monteal would have been in the World Series, and having a prominent Canadian player on a Canadian based team in what would have been the third World Series in a row to take place in Canada would have been a dream come true. Instead the strike not only prevented that from happening, but lead to moves that ultimately began the long death of the franchise.
