Nats! In StL!

Don't need much of a bullpen when your 35 year-old starter, Aníbal Sánchez, hurls 8 2/3 hitless (not counting the 2 batters he hit). But, their bullpen has been shockingly great, too. Sánchez allowed the only hit in a shutout game. The bullpen is now up to 17 straight scoreless innings.
Speaking of Rudy, WTF?

Flaherty-Strasburg on the bump tonight in D.C. That should be a good one. Strasburg has been an awesome playoff pitcher.

Woo Hoo!!!! (I've got a cousin in DC, he's loving this, so yay cousin!)😋


Dodgers were the best team in the NL. The two best teams in baseball are playing in the ALCS.

Does your cousin go to games, and has he been going to playoff games?

I grew up attending Washington Senators games, mostly with my mom.

Even before I was born they were the sad sacks in "Damn Yankees”. That version left to become the Twins in 1960.

The team I saw was the expansion Senators team from 1961-71.
I was too young for the 1971 riot, but was with the rioters in spirit.
On September 21, 1971, by a vote of 10 to 2, American League owners granted approval to move the franchise to Arlington (TX) for the 1972 season. Senators fans were livid. Enmity came to a head at the club's last game in Washington. Thousands of fans simply walked in without paying after the security guards left early, swelling the paid attendance of 14,460 to around 25,000, while fans unfurled a banner reading "SHORT STINKS". With the Senators leading 7–5 and two outs in the top of the ninth inning, several hundred youths stormed the field, raiding it for souvenirs. One man grabbed first base and ran off with it. With no security in sight and only three bases, umpire crew chief Jim Honochick forfeited the game to the New York Yankees.
Not that I stayed a fan, but the misery continued for the Texas Rangers, even with Nolan Ryan's pitching and Shrub's "leadership". It would not win the AL Western Division until 1996.
The first playoff series, 24 years after the franchise came to Texas, saw the Rangers lose to the New York Yankees, 3 games to 1....Oates led the team to consecutive AL West championships in 1998 and 1999. Neither of Oates' last two playoff teams could win a single game, losing all six in back-to-back sweeps at the hands of the Yankees, a team that won three World Series in the 1990s after defeating Rangers teams in the first round. The 1999 team was to be the last playoff-bound team until 2010.
They finally made it to the 2010 & 2011 World Series, losing both. They have not been back.

Anyhow, forgetting about the Rangers this is the first DC success in my lifetime, and its greatest team since:

1924: World Champions
1925: American League Champions
1933: American League Champions

Yippie!

He does go to quite a few games, but didn't go to be he ncls. But he's kind of bumming, he's leaving town for the Mediterranean for three weeks. First world problem!😱

Liked that 1971 Senators story, didn't know that.

Blech.

Heard on the broadcast last night that the 2010's are the only decade that the evil empire has not appeared in the world series. Unbelievable.
They kinda suck lately at being an empire, then.
They got good at sucking😜. History made!!
