The Former Montreal Expos moved to Washington shortly after the 2004 season, due to lack of ticket sales and popularity.
After spending 2 seasons playing half their games without an owner and with 2 homes (Olympic Stadium in Montreal, and Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan, PR) The finally found a home in our nation's capital.
The team hopes to get a larger fan base and more publicity by playing in DC.
Good Luck and Best Wishes to the Washington Nationals.
Jose Vidro's the man
A long-suffering baseball team that has jumped to life. Currently holds the best record in the NL and has sat atop the NL East for most of the season. The team is powered by sensations Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Steve Lombardozzi, Ryan Zimmerman, Bryce Harper, and Ian Desmond, to name a few. Along with a core of young talent the team is fueled by veterans with game such as Adam LaRoche, Jayson Werth, and Mike Morse. Their destiny? To shut up anyone who dares mock Nats Town anymore. Making fools of naysayers and former champions everywhere.
"The Washington Nationals have swept the Phillies in four games in the Phils' own park."
"The Nats have the best team ERA in baseball."
"Bang, zoom, curly W! Nats win again!"
"Show your NATITUDE!"
The laughingstock of the MLB.
Doctor: "You know what'll cheer you up?"

Doctor: "WASHINGTON NATIONALS!"
Sick Patient: "Hahahahahahhaha!!11"
1) On pace to be the WORST team in major league baseball. Even worse than those sucky Detroit Tigers who in 2003, went 43-119, a winning percentage of .265. They are dead last in every major offensive category and what the hell, probably defensive too! They are pretty much the biggest waste of talent in the world. No wonder Strasburg doesn't sign...
Friend 1: Holy shit the Cubs are on a 4 game win streak!!
Friend 2: Well no shit! They played a 4 game series against the Washington Nationals! CHILL YOUR BONER!
