The 2001 Montreal Expos season was the 33rd season in franchise history.

Offseason[edit]

  • December 21, 2000: Tim Raines signed as a Free Agent with the Montreal Expos.[1]
  • December 21, 2000: Curtis Pride was signed as a Free Agent with the Montreal Expos.[2]

Spring training[edit]

In 2001, the Expos held spring training at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida, a facility they shared with the St. Louis Cardinals. It was their fourth season there.

Regular season[edit]

  • April 6, 2001 – In an era where the only bright spot for Expos fans was Vladimir Guerrero, another bright spot emerges as hero Tim Raines returns to Montreal for one last hurrah. In Rock's first at-bat back at the Big O he drew a walk off Glendon Rusch. Throughout the whole at-bat every Expo fan at the stadium stood and clapped for Timmy...all 45,183 of them.
  • In a season that ended with talks of contraction, Felipe Alou was released as the Expos manager. He was replaced by former Chicago White Sox manager Jeff Torborg. Future White Sox manager Ozzie Guillén was a coach for the Expos.
