Ecstasy to Agony: The 1994 Montreal Expos: How the Best Team in Baseball Ended up in Washington 10 Years Later traces the fortunes of the Expos from that day in 1989 when the organization’s original owner Charles Bronfman decided to sell the team and step away from baseball, through to the team’s climb to glory in 1994 and then its final descent into oblivion ten years later. Written by Danny Gallagher and Bill Young, authors of the best-selling Remember the Montreal Expos , and with a Foreword by award-winning Toronto Sun baseball columnist Bob Elliott, the book provides highlights of the 1994 season, including Pedro Martinez’s near-perfect game April 13, Cliff Floyd’s golf-shot homer off of Greg Maddux June 27, Marquis Grissom’s inside-the-park, walk-off homer Aug. 1, and Larry Walker’s ‘almost’ trade to Baltimore. Ecstasy to Agony also examines the troubled labour relations which took root in the days of Marvin Miller and culminated in the players’ strike that began August 12, 1994. With its broad focus on the ins-and-out of that final decade, Ecstasy to Agony should appeal to Expos fans everywhere, from the most casual supporter to the most fanatical.
