Late post today. The Nats ended the Phillies season over the weekend (see you in 2017) and look to be cruising. So far they have done pretty much everything they should and nothing they shouldn't. that's a 90+ win team with ease. But now comes the Cubs.
Now, of course, this is baseball and momentum is only lasts as long as your next starting pitcher, but I do still think it matters to take a game from the Cubs. I do think each series is a reset, so go 0-7 in the regular season and the Nats can wipe it out with a win in Game 1 of the playoffs, but I feel that after that first game the pressures all come down again.
So don't get swept. That's it.
