Who you got?
Washington, please ... I'm sick of the Carl Fredricksen Experience
Theo wins in the playoffs. Nationals never win. I think Cubs win but it would be awesome if the Nats got it done.
The Nationals have to break through eventually. That team is really good, won 97 games without Trea Turner for 2 months and Harper for about 6 weeks. Turner has been amazing since coming back from the DL as well. I think this is the year they finally make the NLCS

Nats and right the ship.
This is a really good pitcher's duel thru4
I can't figure out if the Nats are snakebitten or they're just chokers.
Never pick a Washington sports team to win a playoff series. Never ever.
My interests align with you sir. Better luck tomorrow.
the Cubs are still good, but their rotation took a step back this year. To get two-hit at home... Nationals are just coming up small again.
Ummmm, isn't the baseline from where the runner starts? He was running straight at the bag.... or is it different because white line?
It's going to be interesting to see how their other starters do. Obviously Hendricks was huge tonight. Lester has had a shit year, Arrieta is hurting, and Quintana, who has been great of late, is young and inexperienced. I have no idea what will happen.
They are a mentally weak team and have been for this whole run since 2012. They've never recovered from the 6-0 blown lead and ninth inning melt down against the Cardinals in the 2012 NLDS game 5. As a Nats fan it's infuriating to say the least.
Plus, and I know this is a cliche, the fans are pathetic. I was at game 5 last yr and game 1 tonight and both times people sitting behind my son and I were telling us to sit down all game. Last year in an elimination game no less. And tonight we stood only when Nats pitchers got to 2 strikes. And still they were telling us to sit down.
Sorry for the rambling, just got back from the game and I'm venting. At least the several thousand Cub fans there weren't too obnoxious.
God help us, the season rests on the fragile psyche of Gio Gonzalez tomorrow.
Bunt on Lester
They're never going to be able to wash the Expos taint off of them, they should have just stayed in Montreal and continued coming up small like the Expos were famous for.
Gibbs' Redskins, although there aren't series in football.
This series has the least interest of the four, by a lot. I guess there is some wind there in RF. HR off Jon. 1-0 Knots.
Nats get a lead and proceed to give it up as quickly as possible, to the first hitter in the next inning. Love those Nats.
Lester throws a lot of balls but he also has big ones.
Lester with the Leonidas scream.
To echo Bob Lobel: Why can't we get pitchers like Jon Lester?
Last year and this year's playoffs have been excruciatingly painful for Sox fans.
Man, being a Washington sports fan has to be absolutely agonizing. Great regular seasons, horrible playoffs, year after year.
Yesterday I commented on the need for a Jon Lester type pitcher and someone replied how terrible he has been this yea but tonight shows what I meant ie a pitcher who threw his best in the big games.
Having lived here for almost 8 years now, I've never really met a diehard Nats fan... and I've been to several Nats games. Most, if not all, seem to be primary fans of another team and the Nats are like their second favorite team. This is a very transient region.
I mean every time I've attended a game, I walk up and buy ok tickets 10 minutes before the first pitch.
I am a casual fan of the Wizards and Caps but have fallen hard for the Nats since 2005. I tell my kids it's like my childhood watching the Sox in the 70s and 80s.
My kids are.
That makes sense. Given that this iteration only came to be in 2005, they're the first generation growing up as Nats fans.
The Caps post-seasons are just as bad. The combination--wow.
The Nats are hitting like the Sox. Which is to say they aren't hitting anything, at all.
The Caps have had a bunch of dominant regular seasons and always flame out in the playoffs. They are definitely the most disappointing playoff team in DC.
You just described the Nats as well.
Nice. TIE GAME!
That's a Bryce Canyon shot.
And Harper changes things...
Obliterated by Harper.
Parenting is hard
so some pitchers have that "it" factor and others don't? old-school here.
Carl Edwards might need to return to racing cars.
I was 10 for the 75 WS which set the tone for my childhood fandom so I have experience.
Harper getting hot could be the difference-maker in this series.
Well, well, well
Suck it Cubs
The mighty Zimm!
It looked like Zobrist had it all the way
Holy shit I love baseball so much. That was awesome.
Last year Maddon probably goes to Chapman for Harper. Doesn’t have that weapon anymore.
