I’m calling it right now.  Nats win World Series. They didn’t make the playoffs when they looked like the best team in baseball in 2015.  So they will win when it looks hopeless. Because that’s baseball.

So we lost our MVP candidate? So what. Many teams have won the World Series without an MVP candidate on the roster. If Stras, Scherzer, and Gio are healthy this team can very much still go places.

Nothing about this is even slightly logical but I'm on board with this.

Have any of you played sports before? Has anyone ever played and not sat on the couch acting like they know baseball. The thing that happened to price happens sometimes.

Yes, people do occasionally make it out of Tampa.

How many teams lost their MVP candidate after the ASB and won the WS?

We have another legit MVP candidate (Rendon) and a couple fringe ones that might get in the conversation if they have nicely timed hot streaks. Rizzo will work a deal (Daniel Nava anyone?). It will be harder to win without Harper but he's not the only guy who can pick this team up.

This sucks, but it still  feels less doomed than it did when we lost Ramos last year.

Have you seen the Dodgers. You can't make up for Harper being gone

Nats were going to need some luck to beat Dodgers with Harper. Whether that’s an injury or a loss in the NLDS or just poor play. Now they just need a bit more luck. It isn’t like if Stephen Curry or Kevin Durant or LeBron James went down.

In baseball in the short sample size of a playoff series anything can happen.  You can't replace Harper over 162, but in a 5 game or 7 game series you can.
