    I really need to go to bed but nope. This is too compelling.

    Last roll of the dice for the Nationals is Wilmer Difo.

    Washington Nationals Third Base coach Bob Henley adds another karma moment to the Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals snakebitten history with that gaffe of sending Jayson Werth home where he was out by a mile.

    That was a classic game, and illustrated why I love postseason baseball.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    He was out by 2 miles. The worst basecoaching decision I have ever seen.

    A Little Leaguer would've stopped Werth.

    And Baker's decision to yank Scherzer? Freaking moronic.

    I texted my friends who are Nats fans after the game: When you choose Dusty Baker as your manager, you can't be that surprised at losing an elimination game.

    It takes a special skill set to be able to lose ten consecutive elimination games. I'm not even mad. I'm impressed.

    They're my NL team. I've actually gone to more games at Nationals Park than New Yankee Stadium. I saw this coming 10 months ago when they hired Dusty. Mike Rizzo has to go. All he does is hire bad managers and give Scott Boras clients ridiculous contracts.

    Getting Werth from Philly when Philly was still good was a smart move for the new franchise, but they really overpaid for him. Strasberg is an amazing pitcher but it's clear he's only good for 150 innings a year. He's always hurt. Rendon is a Boras client and is a FA this winter. They'll be fighting with the Yankees for Harper's services in the 2018 offseason. They're paying Scherzer for the next 13 years.

    All that talent and they've yet to win a playoff series. It's amazing.

    But really, why is he still managing? I just thought that he would be retired by now, just like Joe Torre.

    On top of losing such a painful game, thousands were left with no way home as the metro stops running at 11:30pm.

    Also, this quote from a deadspin article sums up what you get when you hire Dusty Baker in 2016 well.

    The seventh inning, top and bottom, took one hour and six minutes. It saw seven pitching changes, four pinch hitters, two pinch runners, and a double switch. It started with Dusty Baker removing his ace starter after just 99 pitches, and ended with Dave Roberts bringing in his closer for what would turn out to be a 51-pitch hold. (Only one of those moves paid off, and itís the one that involves using your best pitchers in high-leverage situations. Funny, that.)

    Re: NLDS - Los Angeles vs. Washington

    I'm late to the party on this, but I just wanted to pass along my delight at the Nationals not advancing, in part because of their bullpen. Reading the Nats boards at the deadline, they were not willing to part with ANYONE for Chapman or Miller, and some took a sarcastic/mocking tone towards the Yankees/Cubs/Indians both before and after their acquisition of Melancon without having to dip into their coffers.

    There's no way of knowing if Miller would have made the difference in this series, but it's hard to look at him putting out fires and essentially demoralizing the opposition every time he pitches for Cleveland, and think that he couldn't have altered the trajectory of a series that came down to the last inning in the final game.

    So because of the attitude I saw from those fans, I enjoyed the first round exit immensely.
