1/6/10 Cubs or Expos?

The Hall of Fame will meet with Andre Dawson to discuss the issue of which cap he will wear in Cooperstown. Dawson played 11 seasons with the Expos, six with the Cubs. The HOF decides, with the player’s input. When asked on Wednesday, Dawson said he was going to enjoy the moment and settle the issue of the cap later.

I covered Dawson in 1987 when he arrived in Chicago. He had his best days with the Cubs. During an interview before Christmas with me, Dawson was asked which cap he’d prefer to wear into Cooperstown.

“I think you know the answer to that,” he said, chuckling. “And for a lot of obvious and personal reasons.”

Based on your association with the Cubs, and your incomprehensible hall of fame ballot, one would think if he had a choice he would pick the Expos.

But he doesn’t have a choice, so it will be the expos.
