The Nationals will win the East in 2006.

A noun short for "Mexican National." Nationals are members of the aristocracy of Mexico who either come to America on vacation primarily to buy everything they see or for permanent residence. Nationals are characterized by quick Spanish speaking, materialism, walkie talkies, children on leashes, heelies, rudeness, and yelling in public. Nationals usually inflict major cities of Texas and other border states.

A dismal Major League Baseball team that despite a move from Montreal, still hasn't gotten over the 1994 baseball strike.
