Blue Jays 1, Expos 0: The Urban Rivalry That Killed Major League Baseball in Montreal
Blue Jays 1, Expos 0: The Urban Rivalry That Killed Major League Baseball in Montreal
by David Luchuk
Paperback from McFarland & Company
Media Published: 2007-
ISBN: 0786428120

The 2001-2002 offseason was a tumultuous one for Major League Baseball. The commissioner's move to contract two teams, voted on and approved by league owners in a 28-2 vote, left fans in several cities fearing for the future of their teams. The Montreal Expos, with a recent history of poor play and even poorer attendance, seemed an obvious choice. Canada's only other big league franchise, the Toronto Blue Jays, had voted in favor of the commissioner's proposal but seemed as likely a candidate as either of the teams targeted by owners. This book examines the 2002 season of the Expos and the Blue Jays, setting events against the backdrop of a long-nurtured urban rivalry between Montreal and Toronto. Chapters cover the summer of 2002 month-by-month, supplementing on- and off-field events with a wealth of historical background and showing how competition placed the Expos and Blue Jays as well as their two host cities on permanently divergent paths.

From Worst to First: The Toronto Blue Jays in 1985
by Buck Martinez
Paperback from Fitzhenry & Whiteside
ISBN: 1550051962
 It was not an unusual play, at least for me.  
I was just blocking the plate, trying to save a run in a scoreless tie.  
Nothing heroic.  
Nothing foolish.  
Just trying, as I had since joining the Jays in 1981, to remind a runner that in any game against Toronto, home plate belonged to Buck Martinez, and no one else.  
It's a play that gets me hit on more occasions than I have time to count. I've been run over, knocked down, and even (several times) knocked out; but I've always escaped unscathed, unhurt, determined more than ever to protect that very private piece of turf I call my own.  
That's just the way I feel about home plate.  
My teammates know this. The players with the other clubs know it. I'd even guess that most baseball fans who have ever seen me play know it too.  
It's not just home plate, it's my home plate.  
The only trouble on that fateful night in Seattle's Kingdome, was that somebody had apparently
forgotten to tell Phil Bradley.  
From spring training to season end, Martinez writes about the players, the coaches, the key games and the emotion of the team winning its first championship.  
Buck's story is sprinkled with first hand commentaries: the Bell-Kison incident, both crucial series against the Yankees, the best game the Jays ever played and post season games down to the final out.
