November 14, 2016, Meg Maguire
This bill is not about loyalty to our beloved Nationals team: 10 jumbotron billboards on the exterior of Nationals Park will not help the batters’ averages or the pitchers’ ERA (earned run average).  This is, quite simply, a high-stakes game between the Billboard Blights v. the City’s Rights. Who are the managers of these teams?
