Photo of the Day: The Natinals continue to get no respect

Feb 18, 2011, 3:27 PM EDT

No, that's not a headline typo. And no, it's not a two-year-old callback to that issue the Nats had with their jersey. It's an all new NatsFail

 

Probably a minor NatsFail to be sure — and it probably will be fixed shortly — but you’d think MLB.com would make sure that a team name is spelled right on the website selling the merch:

    Typical DC drama……I heard Charley Rangel was ok with the mistake as long as the money was coming in

    I’ve been wondering what Dan Quayle was up to these days?

      Brushing up on his Latin.

      I hear Biden and Internet inventor AlGore have similar problems

        gore was extremely important in turning the internet from a military apparatus (DARPA) to a public, commercial system.

    Wouldn’t be the first time. Natinals has become an accepted part of the lexicon since someone “o” on the front of Adam Dunn’s and Ryan Zimmerman’s uniform before a game two years ago.

      I should have read the introduction to this piece on the home page first.

    I wouldn’t have thought a blogger would be on a high horse about typos.

      Look at that over there!!

    I guess the MLB.com folks don’t read HBT—it’s still wrong.

    Somebody’s “punk’d” MLB’s spellchecker, maybe?
