A new name for the Nats?

Well, this one’s just so bizarre it hurts. The Nationals’ name may be a trademark violation. See, Bygone Sports claims the Nationals name is theirs. MLB says, “um, dude, we talked about this. We had a deal.” Bygone Sports says, “We never settled on final terms. You told me we could talk about ponies.”

The Nationals then shook their head, and took them straight to court. The final verdict is due on 3 April, which just happens to be opening day.
