It Goes to the Nationals!

Well that turned out to be some World Series! The Washington Nationals go from Wildcard to winning it all — their first World Series win as a team!

So congrats to the Nats!

They made the history books on this one: This is the first seven-game postseason series ever in which the away team won all seven games. That’s never happened before in the MLB, the NBA, or the NHL.

“Home field advantage” definitely wasn’t any advantage this time.

I really feared for the Nationals during their three home games. They only scored one run in each of those games, losing badly: 1-4, 1-8, and 1-7. Overall, they were outscored 3-19 (and outhit 17-34)! It was bad.

But they won all four games in Houston, so that’s what matters!

(And I’m so glad Houston didn’t win. I hate them almost as much as I hate the Yankees.)

And now no more baseball until spring.

As we enter November, here’s an odd thing to consider: There’s a whole new baseball season and postseason between now and the next election, but the campaigns are getting into full swing.

Politically, it’s going to be a long year!

Stay in the ballpark, my friends!
