The former Montreal Expos have only been in Washington since 2003 which is not enough time to develop a Hall of Fame caliber player or a truly outstanding player with long term association. All-Star Gold Glove winning third baseman Ryan Zimmerman has played 11 seasons and leads the Nats with over 200 home runs but injuries have caused him to tail off in recent seasons. Is it too soon to anoint Bryce Harper after just four seasons and over 100 home runs? All he has done thus far is be Rookie of the Year and reigning league MVP. Harper is a superstar and the big question facing Washington is what happens when he hits free agency? Complicating matter is a less than stellar injury plagued 2016 season for Harper.

The Montreal Expos, were they originally from Canada and then moved across the border to Washington? I knew teams moved around in the US, but didn't realise they could cross interantional borders

Montreal was a franchise of Major League Baseball and subject to the same conditions as any other team.

Yeah, Harper is a stud.
