Washington Nationals

The Expos should officially become the Washington Nationals on Monday: a news conference is supposed to make the announcement and reveal the new cap and red, white, and blue color scheme. (As opposed to the old red, white, and blue color scheme?)

I do feel bad for those sixteen fans in Montreal who actually showed up for the games and supported their Expos, but I'm glad to see the players getting a permanent home (and hopefully a REAL fan base, with real fan support).

Perhaps in an effort to drum up support for the new team, Expos management has been busy signing free agents. Christian Guzman makes sense to me, but I'm not sure why they'd give Vinny Castilla 6.2 mil or even want the clubhouse pariah that is Jose Guillen?
