Wasn't the American League called the Nationals for a long time? --Just me 17:46, 17 Mar 2006 (EST)

Indeed, their official name was the Nationals, until the late 1930's, I think, and it was even written on their uniforms certain seasons, but everyone refered to them as the Senators. We should stick to that convention, in order not to add another layer of confusion, in what is already a pretty convoluted history between the two names.--Philippe 02:09, 18 Mar 2006 (EST)

Why do two of the Washington Senators link to the Minnesota and Texas teams? --MichaelEng 22:23, 15 August 2006 (EDT)

The Washington Senators page isn't even listed here. The two AL teams are directed to the teams they became. --Just me 23:57, 15 August 2006 (EDT)

I've corrected that last problem, as it was absurd to link to the Twins and Rangers when there is an appropriate Senators page. --Philippe 07:19, 21 April 2007 (EDT)

[edit] Homestead Grays

I switched the Homestead Grays years and leagues back to one line as it was the same franchise (owners, players, etc.) that made a league switch. I see that the Brewers are listed on two lines on the Milwaukee page, however, so my change might raise issues of consistant reportage, but I'd rather avoid the confusion of separate lines being taken to mean two separate franchises. For clarity, I'd rather see:

Milwaukee Brewers, American League (1970-1998), National League (1999-present) --CubanXSenators

Whenever there is a league change by a franchise (and it's happened very often in the minor league), we put in a separate line. This is consistent for hundreds of cities. Let's keep things consistent. --Philippe 14:15, 22 April 2007 (EDT)
