Washington Nationals baseball franchise is the Major League Baseball based in Washington, DC since 2005. They operate in the National League. The Nationals have never played the World Series and remain one of the two formations of the current MLB (with the Seattle Mariners) never to have won a League title.
The franchise was founded in 1969 under the name of the Montreal Expos. After a decade of disappointing results, the team knows an upturn in the early 1980s, winning his only championship division in 1981. The Expos lost two finals of the National League 3-2 against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Low-performing during the late 1980s, then a rebound occurs at the beginning of the next decade with players like Larry Walker, Moises Alou, Marquis Grissom
