Until this season ther was just no NL teams close by
I totally agree that it's great having real (NL League) baseball in DC. I just wish the Reds made more than one trip here a year.

And while I've never met Marty, I've met Joe a number of times over the years (We are both alumni of the same high school, even though he is much, much older than I am--Go Big Blue), and he is a fantastic human being.
