Well, I've been inspired to do this by a few different things. I've seen a few people making lists of players who were Astros and Expos/Nationals.
Well, me being me, I'm JUST concentrating on Astros and Expos. My deadline is the moment they became the NotTheSpos.
Oh and this is all in time for game 3 of the World Series.
So looking at the wonderful Baseball Reference site tells me 57 players shared uniforms.
Andy Stankiewicz was an Astro from 1994-1995, and an Expo from 1996-1997
Bert Roberge played for the Astros from 1979-1982 and the Expos from 1985-1986
Bill Gullickson played for the Expos from 1979-1985 and for the Astros in 1990.
Because of when I started watching baseball, I only remember Gullickson as a Tiger. I didn't know he started with the Expos, or that he kind of bounced around between the Expos and the Tigers.
Bruce Chen played for the Expos in 2002, and the Astros in 2003.
Butch Henry played for the Astros in 1992 and for the Expos from 1993-1995.
I have to say, I still really love those Astros uniforms. I also liked the updated Expos uniforms they used, though really the originals were so iconic.
Carl Everett played for the Astros in 1998-1999 and for the Expos in 2004
Carroll Sembera played for the Astros from 1965-1967 and the Expos from 1969-1970
The Astros and the Expos were the extent of his Major League experience. He also spent time in the Cardinals and Reds organizations.
Casey Candaele played for the Expos from 1986-1988 and the Astros from 1988-1993
Candaele was traded to the Astros for Mark Bailey. Bailey didn't suit up for the Expos, though.
The big thing about Candaele is he does have baseball in his family, but not in the expected way.. His mother played in the AAGPBL. He's now managing the Vancouver Canadians.
Chris Truby played for the Astros from 2000-2001 and the Expos in 2002.

According to Wikipedia, Bateman had an interesting mark in history..
There was an incident called the October Crisis in 1970. A Quebec liberation movement kidnapped and murdered the deputy Premier.
