What if Randy Johnson would have stayed with the Montreal Expos?
The Big Unit is about as sure fire of a hall of famer as it gets and has had an illustrious 19 year career with the Mariners, Diamondbacks, Yankees, and yes, the Montreal Expos. Unit was drafted by the Expos out of USC. He made his debut with the team in 1988 but his stay with the Expos was hardly extensive. The wild child was traded from the Expos to the Mariners in 1989 for Mark Langston, a move that only kept Langston in Expos blue until the end of the season before he went on to California to play for the Angels. Great trade? Not so much. I’d catergorize it as awful.

Heh, what's funny is that when that trade was made,I remember alot of fans absolutely hated the fact that we traded away what was arguably our best pitcher for this big tall ugly dude with a mullet who couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with his fastball.
Needless to say, people changed their minds very quickly.
