Re: MLB Discussion - 2012 Season

Why do they make a point of saying the Nationals are "the first Washington based team" to be 20 games over .500 since 1933?

There have been what, 3 (now) major league "Washington based" teams since 1933? The one that became the Twins & the one that became the Rangers, plus the Nats.

It's not like it's the same team Though it might be the first time the Nats/Expos have been 20 games over.
