First in War, First in Peace, and Soon to be Last in the National League

I'm excited by the news that D.C. is getting a baseball team again--about time. I had assumed that the right name for the team was the Senators, but reader B.W. points me to Remember the Grays, which makes the case that Major League Baseball should honor Washington's old Negro League team by renaming the Expos the Grays.

Sounds like a fine and fitting idea. Pass it on.

Comparing defunct baseball teams teh only way I know how, I've certainly seen more Grays jerseys than Senators jerseys here in PG canny merlin. But if other DC sports teams are an indicator, we'll probably get a name like "Wizards with bats" or "the noble savages" or something equally terrible.

go grays!!
