Expos Brad Wilkerson signs autographs prior to the start of the team's final home game.

Well isn’t this a nice treat. Author of the new book — Up, Up, and Away — on the star-crossed, beloved, tortured history of the Montreal Expos Jonah Keri joins me in studio to talk about The Kid, the Hawk, Rock, Vladi, Pedro, le Grand Orange, Youppi and all things Montreal Expos.

We also spend a few minutes previewing the 2014 baseball seasons, bantering about teams and players and the like ahead of Opening Day.
