The Nats are really a great fun team to watch right now.
I hate the Nationals, but for very different reasons than most. Under different circumstances I would have been neutral and maybe even attempted to stay a fan of the franchise, but I was pretty active on the FanHome/Scout Expos forum and there were a bunch of posters from Washington who really took a lot of joy out of spitting on the Expos' grave.
I think it's a lot like the Thrashers fans with the Jets: some had no interest in following an out-of-town team, some were able to hold on, and some were driven away by some of the gloating fans from Winnipeg.
The Marlins are by far my most hated team in sports though. The Nationals are on Bruins level in the next tier. Maybe I'd feel a little bit differently if they made any attempt to even acknowledge the team's history in Montreal but I don't know.
