    Not really. Everyone knew Nats offered so much deferred money to Harper that he'd be paid until he was like fuckin 60 years old. But him leaving is a god send in a way. Sure you lose out on a potential generational talent, but in turn it basically allows them to potentially keep Strasburg and Rendon and use that money to bring in key pieces where they were weak to begin with. Though with how he's pitching in the postseason and Rendon putting up "sliders on rookie level" numbers, I'd assume both of them would command potentionally 150-Upper 250's million$ pending on the length of the contract.

    What's funny though, is even when he shit the bed HARD in the first month of the season, he still had a fantastic season (.260 / 35 / 114 / 15) The BA leaves a bit to be desired, and he struck out way too much, but he was hitting the ball hard pretty much the entire season, stat sheet wise, he was almost as good as he was in 2015 when he won MVP. But he's in the same boat as Stanton, they don't want "elite" numbers. They want "You're paid to be the best. So No one should have that title except you" seasons.

    It would of been blown WAY out of proportion if the Phillies made the playoffs and met the Nats, but that entire team shit the bed and shot itself in the foot so many times it doesn't really matter at this point.

    From 19-31 in May to the World Series. I don't even have anything clever to say.

    People making shit posts on reddit have been making a huge deal about Harper being at home while the Nats finally find success in the post season. As a Nats fan Harper honestly feels like ancient history at this point. I loved his time here and he did some incredible things and I hope he has a great career but I have too many amazing players to root for on this team to pay much mind to guys who went elsewhere. Rendon, Soto, Scherzer, Strasburg, Turner, Robles, etc.

    Congratulations, Serge. Nats are an awesome team. I will never get over the Mariners drafting Danny Hultzen over Anthony Rendon. He just keeps getting better.
    And Hultzen never threw a pitch in the majors.
    But good luck. I’ll be rooting for the Nats all the way.

    Is it just me or are the Red Sox like the most unpredictable team in any sport? This is the third time in my lifetime they've won the World Series then been literal garbage the next year with the entire same team. Baseball is really all I keep up with and it's so odd because it's not even like all three times it was the same team. Like they win then just fucking blow the next year.

    Only reason I'm asking is because the entire city is like scratching their heads over how they could be this bad after winning the World Series. It's so weird.

    Very expensive pitchers were either injured or bad. They still had like a top 5 offense.

    So Grienke, Verlander, Cole, Scherzer, Strasburg, Corbin are all in the WS. I guess starting pitchers are important lol.

    I heard that was just the 5th time a player ended an LCS with a walk-off homerun in MLB history. What a fucking list to be on.

    This has to be the greatest WS ever in terms of starting pitcher matchups. It's looking like it will be Cole/Scherzer G1, Verlander/Strasburg G2, and Grienke/Corbin G3. If you love pitching duels this is the series for you.

    These are actually two of the best offenses in the MLB this year but I'm predicting it's gonna be a bunch of 3-2 games unless Houston is able to force us to use a bullpen pitchers not named Doolittle or Hudson.
