Pardon me, but I think it's a dopey name. Yes, they're playing in the nation's capitol, and they're also in the National League (if it were otherwise, it would be even dopier). But the name doesn't do it for me.
I think with Major League Baseball's emphasis on it's own history and tradition, it seems like the Washington Senators would have been a perfect fit. Sure, the Senators didn't have a great tradition and were never anything special, but if the events of this past October have taught us anything, it's that streaks of bad luck do end. When the NFL saw fit to expand again and resurrect the Cleveland Browns all was right in the world. The same should have been said of the Senators.
