Hadn’t even thought of it that way, but you’re right.

 

I just want to see the entirety of the sport’s history honored, and there’s no better place than DC.  Really wasted opportunity. 

 

I’m just happy it wasn’t Senators again. It’s a shame that the former Expos decided to go the route of fetishizing the Second Sens’ solitary winning season. There’s plenty of rich baseball history to mine in DC, none of which involves the career years of a few guys led by an acerbic Hall of Famer.

It's 2050 and we're all old as dirt.......The A's announce after exhausting all avenues in trying to build a ballpark in Oakland, they are relocating to Pluto. 

 

The Rays announce relocation to the Alpha Centauri system, but much like their efforts 30 years earlier, they had agreements with planets and moons in our own solar system to build a ballpark, but for one reason or another, those deals have hit snags and they have to start looking and Alpha Centauri gave them the best deal.

 

Five years later......The Rays' attempts at a ball park on one of the Alpha Centauri planets have failed, so now they will travel the known Universe looking for a place to play.

10 years later, technology has allowed colonization of the sun and the Rays take advantage of this opportunity to become the first team to relocate to the center of our universe and become the “Sun Rays”. Along with the relocation, they finally make a decision as to their identity and go with one direction of the Rays name... choosing the devil ray imagery... 

 

Thus, the new idiom “your as bright as the Rays of the Sun” is born.
