WTF? They were 1-3, right? Congrats, guys. Didnt expect.
Time to win another SC.
Yep, pretty impressive and consider the all star break to end of regular season record. This was an impressive playoff in MLB history and I say this as a neutral fan. Things looked ugly until Rendon homered. Houston can attack from any batting lineup and Altuve is money usually. I really got tired of that train as a Dodger fan in the WS and will forever despise Yu Darvish. The Nats shut those guys down when it mattered. Eaton getting the extra RBIs kept Houston from pulling off a Joe Carter moment along with Corbin and Hudson. The fact Altuve struck out is just shocking by itself. Baseball fans won't see another run like this again or for a long time. Great to see a team win for first time too. This season for Nats reminds me of last years Blues. They changed their season around midway and played hard ball. I don't think many would have bet Houston would lose given that batting order, team defense, and starting rotation. Truly was a remarkable run. February will be here fast.
Max was making me suuuper nervous last night. But dude gutted it out.
What a magical run for the Nats.
Wow Holts has gone full on Jesus.
Congrats to the Nats. But it will be diffucult (impossible lol) to surpass the Caps celebration lol.
For any team ever!
If the Nats go swimming in the fountains in November, I'll give them props for trying!
Fernando Rodney is officially forgiven. So is Bryce Harper. And Drew Storen too.
Looking back on last night I can’t help but think how great it feels to be on the winning side of a game 7 choke after what has gone down with the Caps and Nats prior to 2018.
Best pic yet of how close these teams are;
What I find interesting about these runs is what we all found so frustrating for all those years, and by that I mean the feeling that if they could just break through, if they could just get that bounce, if they could just get that clutch performance when it really mattered then it would snowball and they'd take advantage. I think the Caps and Nats were both good enough to win multiple titles respectively this past decade but they could never break through that glass ceiling in the early rounds... something always went the wrong way. Once they broke through and started believing it just snowballed and here we are. This is how I felt when the bounces finally started going in our direction:
stickied pending Saturday's parade.
This, so much. For the Caps, it was Kuzy's OT vs Pens that broke through. For the Nats it was Howie's Grand Slam that got them over the hump.
*until pitchers and catchers report.
I'd argue it was Soto's hit in the 8th against Milwaukee. That error by Grisham NEVER happened for DC teams in the past. When that happened you thought, huh, let's see where this goes.
Saw the Garret Cole crap. Maybe that team needs an attitude adjustment
Always love these pics.
He took off his Astros hat and put on the logo of his agent, 5 minutes after the game. Then almost wouldn't do interviews claiming he was "unemployed".
Sour grapes are very sour.
That was Lars Eller Columbus moment.
Sounds like an unhappy guy and no because of the WS. add Cole to Bergman carrying the bat and the asshat who got fired for taunting women in the locker room, that team has some behaviral issues
