The Expos recorded 78 wins during the 1984 season and finished in fifth place in the National League East. A managerial change occurred as Bill Virdon was replaced by Jim Fanning. The highlight of the Expos season was the acquisition of Pete Rose. After being benched in the 1983 World Series, Rose left the Phillies and signed a one-year contract with the Montreal Expos.

Offseason

Regular season

  • April 13, 1984: Pete Rose doubled off of his former teammate, Phillies pitcher Jerry Koosman, for his 4,000th career hit. Rose would join Ty Cobb as only the second player to enter the 4000 hit club. The hit came 21 years to the day after Rose's first career hit. Rose was eventually traded to the Reds for infielder Tom Lawless on August 15. While with the Expos, Rose had 72 hits and batted .259.
