Washington Nationals

When I'm ready to stop calling them the Expos, I think I might have to go with Shnuls. And I'm definitely spelling it that way too. Great call Frank.

Should have gone with 'Grays' after the Homestead Grays

I admit I like the nickname, and the history behind it would have been awesome, but MLB would have had a hard time marketing "Grays." Personally, I wanted them to be nicknamed the Senators, and use an inverted Expos logo as their "W."

Ok Jack, with you we never know, so I have to ask this...

You DO know the Washington Generals are the basketball team that lost something like 50 games in a row to the Harlem Globetrotters, right?

Though I suppose since this team used to be the Expos, the name might be appropriate. Nice work jd.

Oh I know about them(thanks to the Simpsons), but I came up with that name as a homage to G-Wash.

Ok, I pretty much figured, but neither one would have suprised me. Good laugh tho.

I thought the Generals were due! Look at them! He's just holding the ball!!!

EDIT: My apologies for quoting episode 2F12 incorrectly. It should have read:

Krusty: "Oh, I thought the Generals were due!"
[TV shows a Globetrotter spinning the ball as Generals watch]
"He's spinning the ball on his finger! Just take it, take the
ball."
[the Globetrotter kicks it into the net behind him]
"That game was fixed. They were using a freakin' ladder, for
gods' sakes."

Classic.

I enjoyed the Expos doc, although the one that the MLB Network did on the 1994 Expos pretty much touched on all of that stuff. Did have better talking heads, and of course, it had the Shatner, which makes everything good.

I was stunned they actually put this to end the doc, though.

Did they address that the Indians were 1 game back of the White Sox when the strike started. If the Indians make the play-offs in 1994, maybe they have the experience to beat the Braves in the World Series in 1995.

The 1994 Expos doc was just about the Expos.

I would watch a 1994 Season doc, though, because you had the White Sox, Indians, and Yankees who looked like the class of the AL--and the 10 games under .500 Rangers in first place at the time of the strike. Obviously, you've got the Expos and Braves, but Cincy and Houston had a little thing going, as well, plus you had historic seasons from Bagwell, Gwynn, Griffey, Matt Williams, etc. The "What If?" from that is pretty impressive.

I do find it funny that people think (and I'll admit to thinking it, too) that Montreal would have just run a train on everyone in the playoffs. Just as good a shot Atlanta is your first Wild Card world champ that season.
