  • 2019: Won the fight
I reject this 2005 premise. In my alternate reality DC had a team when I was growing up and Ken Griffey, Jr. led them to 3 World Series.

Kevrock, here is your alternate reality: Calvin Griffith kept the Nats in Washington, so Washington kids and older fans kept cheering for Harmon Killebrew, Camilo Pascual, Bob Allison, and Zorro Versalles. Our Extended Senators won the AL pennant in 1965 and again and again, as we cheered for Tony Oliva and Rod Carew. Calvin sold locally in the 1970's, and the Nats continued to win. Throughout, the Washington Senators -- Nats for short -- were the dominant team in DC.
