2014 is Different

The Nats have been making a strong statement recently.  Starting sometime in August of this year they have been playing “playoff” baseball, which they clearly DID NOT DO in 2012.  Just about everyone on the “core” 25-man roster has stepped up his game, including Strass and Gio (who up to then were having sub-par years).  The 5 walk-off wins in 6 games was a wake-up call for the rest of the National League.  The 4 out of 6 games they took from the dodgers and Mariners was another.  Ryan Zimmerman’s 2 base hits in his first game back from the DL was yet another.  And the list goes on.

We don’t know what will happen in the playoffs, but Matt Williams has the team READY!  Now the most tantalizing question is who will make the playoff roster.

  1. Pete: Better hope the Dodger’s pitching is not 100% when they get to the Nats. Ryo has been “off” a little but Kerchaw has been unbeatable. A 7 game series benefits the Nats but the Bums should “own” the 5 gamers. Do they still play 5 gamers?
