Whatever happens they've done a helluva job in reviving baseball in DC.
A wonderful season for them, regardless of last night. But that one hurts bad, real bad. Couldn't get an out to seal the victory, couldn't get an out to keep it tied and move to extra innings.
Time for fans and players alike to lick the wounds for a while, then move on.
Spring training will start next year with the Nats knowing
what sort of team they have, not wondering
and finding out as the season progresses. No pitcher will have an innings limitation. The star rookie will play a full year with some seasoning now behind him. The majority of the team will return intact, and they're not getting old.
A painful loss last night to be sure, but it's a very bright future outlook for the Washington Nationals baseball team.
