    You have my HOF vote and good luck in the future now that you have retired. Thanks for the wins you gave the Yanks from 2001-2008. Have an enjoyable retirement.

    So far everyone is wrong. A few more guesses and I will reveal the answer.
    Hint: This guy hasn't seen a diamond in MANY years.

    Sorry dude, but in the last 100 years, Boston has had TWO names.

    If you are getting your information from Baseball Almanac on this it could be misleading. Baseball Almanac currently has the the Boston Americans winning the 1903 WS and the Washington Senators winning the 1924 WS. I went and got a copy of the
    WS page that I copied from Baseball Almanac in 2002 and it has the Boston Pilgrims winning the 1903 WS and the Washington Nationals winning the 1924 WS. Now we all know that the Washington Club was officially the Nationals till the latter 50's then became the Twins in 61 or so.

    The WS page changed to the Senators after the new Washington Nationals started. When Boston changed to the Americans form the Pilgrims I have no clue. Just caught it today when I dug up my 2002 copy of the WS winners page from Baseball Almanac. Maybe some of Baseball Fevers members that do work for Baseball Almanac can explain why they switched names since 2002 and the reason why they did, history shouldn't change like that.


    This is a good read on the past names for the Boston Red Sox.

    So Auto and Mikey, you still believe that the Red Sox only had 2 names since 1901?

    I'm sure that even baseball reference didn't do as much research as the historian in the link I posted. Like a lot of baseball history, it's who you believe yourself.

    Baseball Reference also has the Twins as the Senators and they were the Washinton Nationals for 55 years or so. Look it up.

    1956: After more then 50 years of insisting the team was officially called the Nationals the team finally change its nickname to the more commonly called Senators. The name change does not do anything to save the sinking ship that is Washington Baseball as the club finishes with another woeful 59-95 record, while finishing in 7th Place.



    1960: After years of struggling with attendance, and fighting with baseball, and city officials Calvin Griffith the owner of the original Senators gets approval to move. The approval comes as the American League decides to expand 1 year earlier then planned. Part of the approval comes because one of the two expansion teams will be placed in Washington to replace the charter AL franchise that moved to Minnesota. Although the team will pick up the old name Senators, it will be as an expansion team, since the team that moved to Minnesota was allowed to keep its history.
