Oh yeah, they could crank out talent--especially outfielders. Larry Walker, Moises Alou (actually acquired from Pittsburgh), Marquis Grissom, Cliff Floyd, Rondell White, Vladimir Guerrero.... Talented OF's have always been a calling card of Les Expos--back in the 70's they developed Andre Dawson, Ellis Valentine, Warren Cromartie, and Tim Raines.
