    What a wild run this was. It was a nail biter of a series and absolutely crazy that all seven games were won by the away team. I am really stoked that the Nationals won

    I'm happy for the Nationals. It was a hell of a World Series. I have to imagine Nats fans are feeling the same way I did when the Cubs won three years ago, it's an incredible experience.

    Hinch threw the series away when he a) pulled Greinke with only 80 pitches thrown and b) didn't bring in Cole.

      The Astros also had some really bad luck. I spent the first five innings thinking "Scherzer doesn't have it tonight, they're gonna get some runs off of him" but nothing ever really materialized...

        Yeah, failing to capitalize on on that many RISP almost always ends badly. Gotta hand it to Scherzer for being a bulldog despite not having his good stuff.

          That was the theme of the Nats' run, they never gave up. I have to imagine it will be remembered for a long time because of it. They were four outs from losing the wild card game and being clowned...

          That was the theme of the Nats' run, they never gave up. I have to imagine it will be remembered for a long time because of it. They were four outs from losing the wild card game and being clowned on yet again, a few outs from losing in the NLDS and being clowned on yet again, and staring down elimination against one of the best rotations ever they prevailed.
