Oh, Buck. And so, after Stephen Strasburg made his feelings known on Monday, Buck Showalter chimed in on the "Orioles fans at Nationals Park" thing on Tuesday:
"You realize how big an area this was for the Orioles before our owner was kind enough to let them have a team here. I understand that a lot of people that are here are people who used to come over to Baltimore. Now, it’s just a little shorter trip for them." (Buck Showalter, via Baltimore Sun, 7/9/2014)
Showalter is mostly correct, except for that little "our owner was kind enough to let them have a team here" thing.
