Peter Angelos No Longer Wants the Nationals to Burn in Hell

The Orioles were rained out in Texas last night yet their remarkable start continued as they gained a half-game on every other team, losers one and all, in the American League East. I’m not sure if that’s the reason why Peter Angelos is in such a good mood these days or not. Usually the topic of the Washington Nationals makes him want to sue everybody within earshot.

If you recall, Angelos fought tooth and nail against D.C. getting a franchise because it would interfere with his hegemony in the area. Something must have brightened his mood, though, because he was uncharacteristically semi-ebullient while discussing them with the . “But nonetheless, it is the nation’s capital, and the team is there, and it ought to be supported, and hopefully, both franchises will provide successful baseball.”

“We definitely want them to succeed”

“There’s no law against visiting the other franchise. One’s a National League city and one’s an American League city.”

I’m pretty sure the only reason why he’d like to see the Nats succeed is so that MASN, his cable network which MLB gave $75 million to finally get the move done, makes more money.

It’s heartening to find out that he’s no longer lobbying the state of Maryland to make attending Nationals game a crime, though. My knowledge of that great state’s political system begins and ends with Clay Davis of but I assume its accurate and therefore easily manipulated by a man of Angelos’s wealth.
