  • From one report I heard, Texas Rangers own the rights to the "Washington Senators" name. Not that they wouldn't pass it back, but just a little hurdle to clear to use that name.

      All the more interesting. Since the media are reaching for every last straw of information to spend even more time covering the "Expos moving to DC Next Season" non-story, someone found this tidbit. The original Washington Senators (one of the earliest clubs to play the game) moved to become the Minnesota Twins in the 1960s. Washington then got an expansion team, also called the Washington Senators, that stayed in DC ~10 years before becoming the Texas Rangers. So this could be the third team called the Washington Senators. (Confused yet?)
