WASHINGTON NATIONALS
Washington Nationals (2005–present)
Montreal Expos (1969-2004)

The move from Montreal to Washington began in the 2005 season despite opposition from Peter Angelos, owner of the nearby Baltimore Orioles. On March 31, 2005, Angelos and Major League Baseball struck a deal to protect the Orioles against any financial harm the Nationals might present.

Under the terms of the deal, television and radio broadcast rights to Nationals games are handled by the Orioles franchise new network, MASN. The deal with Angelos makes the Nationals the only major league baseball team which does not own their own broadcast rights.
