’94 Expos — Happy Birthday: Felipe Alou edition

Happy 79th Birthday to the greatest manager in Expos history, Felipe Alou.

Not only did Alou helm Montreal’s ship for part of ten seasons, he helped to build the young Expos into a formidable opponent before the strike and economics robbed the franchise of an opportunity to develop into what they easily could have been — a dynasty.

We all remember the magical ’94 club, but from 1992-94, Alou posted a 238-163 (.593) mark as skipper, taking home National League Manager of the Year honors in ’94. In fact, from ’92-96, Alou also finished second twice with a bronze in the same voting, and of course went on to guide the Giants to a division championship in 2003, as well.

And lest we forget, Alou had a little more to do with the success of the ’94 Expos that X’s and O’s, because he created outstanding left fielder Moises Alou and was uncle to set-up man and sometimes closer Mel Rojas because, let’s face it, the Alou family has baseball in its blood.

Alou also played 19 games with the ’73 ‘Spos at the age of 38, batting .208 with a double, homer and four RBI.

It certainly seems that Felipe Alou is to Montrealers what Tom Kelly represents to Minnesotans — royalty.

Happy Birthday, Felipe!
