The Senators were called the "Nats", FYI.  :D  (seNATors) or short for Nationals thru 1956, but often called Nats in the WaPo.

The American League Washington Nationals/Senators (1901-1960): The team was officially named the "Nationals" until 1956 but was commonly referred to as the "Senators" beginning in 1905.[1]

Thanks for that info.

They may have been referred to as the Nationals at that time, but if you are citing that franchise (The Washington Senators) now in 2017, then I think that you should at least put their actual name in parentheses, considering that they were a different franchise than the current Washington team, whose actual name is the Nationals.

I chose to call them by their nickname - the Nats.  That is all.  The Rays are no longer the "Devil" Rays but you use that name and are "free" to do that also....;-)

OK, that's fine

The Rays are the same franchise as were the Devil Rays though (like the Bullets and the Wizards), unlike the Nationals and the Senators.

Same all star game in DC, 1969, but jersey not pulled up on Boog and Hondo towering over Boog.  Who is to Boog's right in photo - Blair?

He looks so young but the high pants work.  I though he was bigger.  I see Rod Carew and Bert Campaneris and Sal Bando?

Frank was not an imposing looking guy - spindly legs but sinewy, powerful arms.   The high, thin stirrup socks were his trademark, so that's definitely him.

I'm really late to this discussion, but I'm sure one of the reasons the new team was named the Nationals was so that they could use the "Nats" nickname as the earlier franchises did in the past, without having to name them the Senators, a name associated with constant losing.    And anyone who lives down here and has spent time on a baseball field in the summer can tell you that the "Nats" are an ever-present nuisance!

The Expos/Nationals actually wanted to call themselves "The Senators" when they first arrived from Montreal in 2005, but they could not because that name is currently owned by the Texas Rangers franchise.

    • Guys, I'm no moderator, but the interesting debate about McGregor, et al, has (IMHO) reached critical mass. 
    • Don't have anything on hand.  Not sure where to look or even if there is a trustworthy source for the information.  I'm mostly going be fallible memory of how hard guys threw and how, for the most part, left handed velocity is a couple ticks behind right handed velocity. As for your video, sure he looked good.  You chose a start in which he threw a shutout.  I remember DCab looking really good when he threw that one hitter against the Yankees. My point has been, this whole time, that you can't make it in the majors today with the K rate that McGregor had when he pitched. If you would like to show me guys have sustained success in today's game with a K rate under 4...
    • Can you give us a reference about where the evidence is for how "very few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70s"?     Maybe my statistical search is not looking in the same place.     Yeah, the junk baller who won our last World Series game probably ever.    Just watch the video and honestly tell me you think this guy couldn't pitch today.     
    • So few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70's that I just find it unlikely from a statistical standpoint.  I'm not old enough to remember late 70's McGregor.  The guy I remember in the 80's was more of a junkballer.
    • At the same time, you cited 103 mph as the reason older generation hitters would not do well today.  Exaggeration goes both ways in making a point about which I too was trying to communicate...i.e.  I do believe that many 1980s era players could certainly play well and thrive in today's game.     And that some of the pitching skill sets today might even be more valuable in today's game than they were back then.   Even if the velocity is not the same.         I certainly accept that the game is played differently today, different after the steroid era, and that the athletes playing it perform those aspects of the game differently than their predecessors.   Still haven't found the speed gun ratings on Scott in high school, but I suspect they were pretty good....I might just ask him...   Scott McGregor, El Segundo (Calif.), 1972 Although a teammate of Hall of Famer George Brett (as a sophomore and junior), it was McGregor who garnered more headlines during his three-year career under El Segundo legendary coach John Stevenson. McGregor was a three-time All-CIF selection and was twice named Player of the Year. He was also a Rawlings All-American as a senior. He set section records (which still stand) for career wins (51), career shutouts (20), shutouts in a season (9), and consecutive no-hitters (2). He also set the section record for career strikeouts (which has since been broken) with 496. He was the No. 14 overall pick in 1972 draft by the Yankees, but he was eventually traded to Baltimore. 
    • He's the top, He's the Colosseum! He's the top, A cornerstone of the Te-am! -- Pole Courter, from the musical "Anything Counts"  
    • You asked about velocity right? I love how you keep mentioning inner circle HoF players.  No word on how Frank Torre would do.  By concentrating on the top .1% you are missing out on an important issue I tried to relay to you.  Your average hitter is a lot more dangerous.
