    No matter which cap it is, the important thing is that Hawk is in the hall.

    I’m a Cubs fan, but I’m also a migrant from the Expos (the only team that has seen worse heartbreak than the Cubs). These are my two favourite teams we’re talking about, but I can’t think help but think back on the poor old Expos and the more Expos that make the hall (TIM RAINES PLEASE!), the less likely they are to be forgotten.

    Please, for the sake of the beautiful old Expos, let Dawson’s HOF cap be the “M” that looks like an “elb”

    Also, Dawson was al 11th round pick of the Expos. How many orginazatiosn give 21-year-old 11th rounders the shot Dawson got – and at the right position?

    Who knows how the Andre Dawson story would hvae been written had the Expos not drafted him.

      That would be incorrect.

    I dont care which cap he wears. I am just glad he is in the Hall, he should have make it a few years ago.

    i am a mets fan from the 70s and 80s, and i have been trying to figure out the answer for a couple days. i don’t think there is a wrong answer. he is equally a cub as he is an expo. being the loser that i am, i’ve been going up to people at work and asking assuming they don’t know the news or their baseball persepective, the majority seem to think cubs, but i think i would answer an expo as a first reaction, but he truly is both.

    I remember seeing Dawson at Wrigley when he was with the Expos. In fact, he got a lot of initial attention for coming up to the majors in a young starting outfield…which included Ellis Valentine and Warren Cromartie. Then he won ROY…

    As much as I loved him as a Cub…he played 11 years in Montreal. That’s almost twice the amount of time he played in Chicago…and he won an award up there. He also didn’t retire as a Cub. He played four more years away from Wrigley.

    I want him to go in as a Cub, but I’ll understand if the decision goes the other way…
