MLB's ballot for greatest Nationals only includes one Nationals player
MLB recently launched its Franchise Four promotion to find the four greatest players in each team's history, which is a fun and wonderful concept but it gets a little tricky when it comes to the relatively young Washington Nationals.
D.C.'s home team is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this season and doesn't have a ton of history, so MLB was forced to go back to the team's previous iteration, the Montreal Expos, for seven of the eight players on the ballot.
The upside is the balloting system does allow for write-in for those diehard Nats fans who demand that Livan Hernandez be remembered for his time as a National.
