Default Nats and Os clinch division titles within 15 minutes of each other...

Last night was a banner night for baseball fans in the DC/Baltimore metroplex. Nats finished off the Braves on their home field (yes!) while the Os joined the party within 15 minutes afterward.

During the postgame interview, Denard Span thanked Nats management for "resurrecting" his career and said he felt "held back" from playing as he likes in Minnesota. Hmmm. Not the first former Twinkee to say that, by the way.

I live 15 minutes north of Nats park and 45 minutes south of Camden Yards. I'm hoping to attend at least one playoff game, preferably a World Series game between the two teams.

And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country." Jim Caple, ESPN (January 12, 2011)

I hope the Nats go all the way to the World Series. They've put together a pretty solid team over the last few years. I guess they were able to bounce back from the devastating loss of having the Sox take Adam Dunn from team after 2010.

A Washington/Baltimore WS would be cool to see. Actually, with the Mariners resurgent, I wouldn't mind seeing a Washington (DC) vs. Washington (Seattle) WS. Those are the last two remaining expansion teams who have yet to win a pennant.

I wasn't around for '83, so I don't hate the O's. I don't know why but I like them more than the Nats. I enjoyed going to both parks when I lived in the area. A BW Parkway Series (or Beltways Series, whatever you want to call it) would be fun. A Southern California series, a Bay Area series and perhaps even an all-Missouri/I-70 series also remain possibilities.

Alejandro DeAza broke open the O's game last nite with a bases-loaded triple...much like Gillaspie did for the Sox last nite.

They are liking DeAza today in Baltimore.
