Congrats to Cincinnati and Washington

A quick congratulatory note to both the Cincinnati Reds and the Washington Nationals for becoming the first teams to guarantee a spot in the 2012 postseason. For the Nationals, it’s the first postseason play for a  Washington team since Goose Goslin, Sam Rice, and Joe Cronin led the Senators to a World Series berth in 1933 (they lost to the Giants). A fun World Series might be the Nationals versus the Texas Rangers. Remember that the Rangers began their existence in Washington before moving to Dallas in the 1970s.

    I certainly DO remember the expansion Washington Senators before they moved to Dallas/Fort Worth. Frank Howard, Paul Casenova, Ed Brinkman, Dick Bosman, and others, and Ted Williams as manager. I was so ignorant about baseball history in 1970 (the year that I became a BIG baseball fan) that it wasn’t until later that I found out that Ted Williams was not just the manager of the Washington Senators, but was one of the greatest and most colorful players in history!!!! But I was only nine years old!
