Get over it already…

Yes, it’s nice to have a baseball team closer than the Orioles that will be playing in the national league so there are more opportunities for me to go see my Atlanta Braves play, but for the love, stop referring to the Nationals as an expansion team. The league didn’t expand, nor did it contract, rather it relocated. Was there an expansion draft? No. The majority of last years Expos roster is still around, now sporting the Nationals logo and name. Explain to me how this is “expansion”. Expansion into the Northern Virginia / Washingtion DC Metropolitan market, sure. Expansion in the league, not so much, we still have the same number of teams.
