    CONGRATS, NATS!!!

    Very impressive season. I hope they reconsider their decision on Stras, because you never know when a golden opportunity like this to get to the WS will happen again.

    Indeed, I do wonder if they just might. A shot at being Wolrd Champions is a rare thing indeed for some Cities, DC especially.

    So not only were the Nats Division Winners, they finished up as the best team in Baseball.

    I wonder if the Jets will EVER finish a season as the best team in football.....

    I don't think so at this rate.

    Looks like she's becoming a NATS fan.

    Grew up a Yankee fan, she's been to Fenway, Yankee stadium and now this?


    They are a good story. Good for them.

    Leaving Stras off the postseason roster is about to kill the Nats. They're getting destroyed game 3 by the Cards. At least 1 player has annonymously killed the organization for the decision, saying after last game that if Strasburg had been on the roster they'd be up 2-0.

    Stras could blow out his arm next spring anyway. That's pitching. But the Nats might have thrown away their best chance at a championship. How many times are they going to have the best record in baseball and homefield advantage throughout?

    I'd be pretty damn furious if I was a Nats player or fan.

    I find myself rooting against the Nationals because of the Strasberg shut-down decision.

    I usually can explain my schadenfreude, but in this instance I cannot.

    I really want to root for the Nats - my wife is from DC and my FIL is a STH. Problem is, this one DB I went to college with and who is in my Fantasy Football League has been non-stop talking smack about both the Nats AND the Yankees.

    He claims fandom in both b/c he was a Yankee fan all his life until the Nats came around and now he roots for them both. I get the conundrum, but saying that your two favorite teams are in the playoffs just doesn't fly. And he just doesn't shut up.

    And now I find myself wishing they lose. I feel bad about that, but sometimes you simply can't change that initial inclination. Your mind may try to tell you think otherwise, but somehow, you just can't.

    Un.......****ing....believeable.

    I already love one team who routinely rips out my heart and ****s on it.

    Not sure I want to sign up for another.

    That may have been the most brutal choke job in baseball history.

    If the Jets suffered a collapse like that, this board would implode, people would be jumping off bridges.

    As a lifelong devoted Jets Fan, last night felt almost exactly like many, MANY a Jets collapse/sudden dissapointment/unbelieveable failure.

    I'm stull stunned, tbqh. Gut wrenching. Almost unbelieveable that it really happened.
