This is a new banner that recently went up at Nationals Park. As the sign indicates, it's a way to celebrate 150 years of baseball in Washington D.C. It's a nice gesture. Unfortunately, it has the following problems:â†µ
- It is 2011, not 2009. So the sign is two years late.
- There were 33 years when there was no baseball team in this city. Kind of hard to ignore those 33 years. â†µ
Those are pretty big problems. Maybe I'm just missing the point, and I'll gladly back down if so, but these problems kind of undermine the premise of the sign, right?â†µ
