The oral history of Tom Brady and the Montreal Expos

What if…..

Doug Sisson, manager, Delmarva Shorebirds (1996)

We had a catching prospect, Michael Barrett, who was pretty good. But Brady showed up and the entire pitching staff followed him around like a mama duck after a week. I brought (Barrett) in for a chat because I didn’t want him to get discouraged, and he said, “Don’t worry about it. He’s just passing through.” And he was right. (Brady) was called up to Double-A about six weeks later….

Pedro Martinez, teammate, Montreal Expos (1997)

I threw to him in spring training, 1997, and we were all looking at each other, like, “Who is this kid?” I don’t want to get too weird, but he wasn’t just a catcher, he was like a dancer. A ballerina. (laughs) I’m serious! And you knew it right away, too…..

Pedro Martinez

It meant something to me to come back and finish what I started. The Red Sox wanted me to sign an extension, but I was a little homesick. Luckily, the new owners were willing to spend a little more than the old owners.

Jeffrey Loria, art dealer

I was eaten by wasps, so I never owned the Montreal Expos.
