Steve Rogers

1979 Topps

The Montreal Expos’ franchise leader in wins, Rogers career spanned from 1973-1985, all with Montreal. A five-time all star, Rogers won 158 games for the Expos. He was second in the Rookie of the Year vote in 1973 and second in the Cy Young in 1982. He also finished fifth in the Cy Young in 1980 and fourth in 1983. He posted double-digit wins for Montreal 10 times, with his best year coming in 1982 when he was 19-8 with a league-leading 2.40 ERA. He led the league in complete games (14) in 1980, but also led the league in losses twice.


Rogers’ questionnaire is about as good as it gets. As he notes, he played with three future Hall of Famers, Gary Carter, Andre Dawson and Tim Raines, in Montreal. He reached the players once with the Expos. He beat Steve Carlton and the Philadelphia Phillies twice in the 1981 NLDS, then went 1-1 against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS, which the Expos lost in five games.

Writer, historian, father, intrepid traveller, journalist, punk rocker ... I am actually in the (a) Hall of Fame. They said to never trust anyone over 30 and now I am so far past that point, spinning aimlessly and still trying to figure out my place in the world.
