The list of players who have played for both the Orioles and Nationals

After two pretty good years in Baltimore, Nate McLouth has been a bust in D.C. (Jonathan Newton/TWP; Lynne Sladky/AP)

In 2005, I named one of my fantasy baseball teams the Baltington Orinals and, like a true, two-timing homer, filled my roster with a disproportionate number of Orioles and Nationals players. The draft strategy was even worse than the team name, though I think I managed to remain in contention — along with the surprising O’s and Nats — through the all-star break.

One could build a competitive fantasy baseball roster by drafting only players from both squads this season. The same cannot be said for the all-time list of players, including DL-bound Nate McLouth and minor leaguer Steve Lombardozzi, who have played for both the Orioles and Nationals during their careers.

Here, in alphabetical order, are the 22 players who have appeared in a major league game for both the Orioles and Nationals. It’s full of potential and disappointment.
