Maybe Washingtonians can have nice things.
What a heart-stopper.
Maybe the Nats are headed for bigger things this season. The wild-card role suits them better. Washington lost all three opening series as a division champion in past years after cruising into the playoffs. This team won its last eight games to even host the wild card. Surely the Dodgers were rooting for the Brewers rather than face a red-hot team.
The Nats are hungry and maybe a little lucky. And that’s fine. Whatever it takes to bring a World Series to Washington and make October something more than corn mazes and trick-or-treating is fine.
Finally, Washington gets a break.
