Upvote if you, personally, sitting at home, have won as many playoff series as the Washington Nationals have in their history

I think this might have been the longest 9 inning game ever
13 Oct 2017 13:50 - +1689
To those from /r/all, elimination is what happens when the Nationals go to the playoffs.

Washington Big 4 sports teams have now gone 69 straight seasons without a conference championship series/game appearance

For the Fourth consecutive Washington Postseason Appearance... **Postseason Series Wins for the Phillies since 2010:** 1 **Postseason Series Wins for the Nationals since 2010:** 0

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Nationals playoffs. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical pitch-fx most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also DC sports fans nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into their characterization- their personal philosophy draws heavily from Jonah Keri literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Nationals playoff series truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humor in Bryce Harpers existential catchphrase “That’s a clown question, bro,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Ruggero Leoncavallo’s epic Pagliacci. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Busty Baker’s genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂 And yes, by the way, I DO have a Nationals playoff series tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎

There was one man in America not expecting a curveball on that last pitch and it was Bryce Harper

Honestly I'd rather be a San Diego sports fan than put up with the shit D.C. fans feel. Capitals can't get passed the second round Nats can't get passed the first round Redskins don't have a trademark Wizards aren't the cavs so you don't have a chance. So sad.

Doesn't get better than having Harper facing off against Davis with 2 down in the bottom of the 9th down by 1 run. What a showdown.
13 Oct 2017 13:47 - +222
Harper killing the dream on a swing and a miss was the best thing that has happened to me, as a Mets fan, all season* ^(*barring Grandy getting his ring.)
13 Oct 2017 13:46 - +202
Come get some, Chicago.

Don't let the Washington Nationals never winning a postseason series distract you from the fact that the Washington Capitals have won the President's Trophy three times since 2010 and haven't made the Conference Finals.
13 Oct 2017 13:46 - +113
Were all of Dusty Baker’s contracts signed on Indian burial grounds or something?
13 Oct 2017 13:46 - +111
How do you swing at the first pitch after he just walked two fucking batters? Seriously? He's clearly missing the zone. Also, fuck you Bryce Harper for swinging at that shit
13 Oct 2017 14:02 - +110
127 Nationals bandwagon flairs have been set on fire. (and 13 Brewers bandwagon flairs that were overlooked)
13 Oct 2017 13:49 - +99
this game was like six hours I'm exhausted Nationals I recommend you never watch that fifth inning again
13 Oct 2017 13:47 - +98
Came down to Harper himself. Almost scripted scenario. Cubs are on a mission.

The New York Mets won 8 playoff games in 2015. The Washington Nationals have won 7 playoff games in their history.
13 Oct 2017 13:47 - +58
I hate DC sports.
13 Oct 2017 13:47 - +57
If you gave the Nationals a 50/50 shot of winning each NLDS, the odds of them losing all 4 is 6.25%. Truly remarkable.

Dont let the Nats losing distract you from the fact that Javi Baez struck out swinging on a ball above his chin.
13 Oct 2017 13:46 - +49
Whats that? A Dusty Baker managed team lost a critical game? Color me shocked
13 Oct 2017 13:50 - +47
Oakland A's lose bitter, hard-fought playoff series to a team loaded with all-stars and future hall of famers, "LOL CHOKELAND, BILLY BEANE CAN'T WIN." Nationals steal a franchise and buy all-stars and future hall of famers and can't play fundamental baseball, "Well, they're just unlucky."
13 Oct 2017 13:48 - +40
That challenge call was brutal.

May the curse of the Expos continue until they return and win the WS.

Welcome, Nats. We've reserved your usual table.

Say what you want about the call, there was NO reason for him to be leading off that much. Absolutely none. Was he going to steal?
13 Oct 2017 13:59 - +14
I grew up with this team. I'll never stop rooting for them. But man, it sucks to invest so much time and energy into this and feel nothing inside when this happens.
13 Oct 2017 13:52 - +13
I bandwagon the Twins. They get eliminated. I bandwagon the Dbacks. They get eliminated. I bandwagon the Nationals. They get eliminated I now bandwagon the Astros. God, save our souls.

What a fucking game. One of the best game 5s I’ve seen in a while.

Saw this on the MLB site so I figured I'd share it with everyone: The Cubs' strange go-ahead fifth included an intentional walk, a passed ball after a strikeout, a catcher's interference and a hit by pitch. According to Baseball-Reference, none of the 2.73 million half-innings from Major League Baseball stored in the site's database contained these four plays in the same turn at the plate. In fact, only five games within the database contained those four plays in the same game. 1 in 2.73 million

Nationals are just level 5 choke artists. So much talent on their team, but management always finds a way to drive to bus over a cliff. This is a radically safe statement for me to make at this point, but I'm only saying it because I'm really fixated on whether the Cubs are ready for Dodgers. Cubs are a lucky and talented and well-managed squad, but the Dodgers are almost unfairly stacked. Every single player on that team wants to give Dave Roberts a victory and vice versa. If LA plays it safe due to how easily their NLDS went, Maddon just might catch them off guard. Long story short I have NO idea how the NLCS is going to go and that terrifies me.

A BEACON OF LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS FOR BRAVES FANS.

To those of you from /r/all: a Washington Nationals is when you can't win three games in the NLDS.
