    Only difference is Astros are so, so, so good.

    Astros being -200 favorites is way different than Caps.

    it’s going to be one tough series. Hopefully it doesn’t end up like Caps in 1998

    It does feel the same to some extent. These Nats have some resilience about them.

    I think they were. They were just not picked by anyone to win any of the first 3 series. Watched MLB Tonight where they basically said its a toss up that Houston has a thin margin on.

    I like Max

    Not if you were betting money. It was Knights at -150 to win the Cup.

    To me the Nationals are still the Montreal Expos. So I hope they win.

    Similar to Caps beating Pit in 2nd rd that they got the monkey off their back > Nats over Dodgers felt pretty similar, plus so many diff. heroes already

    HOU is a different ballgame tho', really looking forward to the pitcher duels

    Really good matchup. I’d say it is a slight edge to the Astros.

    Pulling for the Nats, though.

    40+ years of suffering vs. 15. Not even close. But still rooting for 'em. Go Nats!

    I loved the Expos, back in the day. My second favourite team to the Seattle Mariners. :)

    They had some really fun and talented teams. They got totally ripped off in 1994. Stupid strike!

    Too bad the Expos had such terrible ownership. :(

    Never cheered for the Nats because I hated the way things unfolded.

    Have been cheering for them these playoffs, though.

    They should have won in 1994!

    I'd like your post but I'm not allowed

    The parallels are amazing

    Biggest difference is you have Orioles fans being bitter and when caps were doing it the whole region was all in. I remember driving up to Baltimore and being at the Orioles game during game one of the ecf. People were watching the game on the phone and the light rail had a fair amount of caps fans. Then memorial day before the final people were yelling at Bryce Harper Vegas lover. The entire MD VA DC region was ALL IN. There was no dissent.

    Contrast that with today where Orioles fans go out of their way to disparage the Nats or insult their fanbase still like Angelos. "DC is not a baseball town." Someone on another caps forum literally said "f*** the nats" and I had to do a double take like :huh:
