Nationals about to make history.

https://www.masnsports.com/nationals-pastime/2019/09/nats-on-verge-of-completing-historic-path-to-postseason.html
The Nationals opened this season 19-31. They are now as little as two wins away from clinching a spot in the postseason. That simply doesn’t happen in this sport.

In fact, only two teams in the last century have done it, making the postseason after playing so poorly in their first 50 games. The 1974 Pirates started 18-32 but finished 88-74, winning the National League East title. The 2005 Astros started 18-32 and finished 89-73, winning a wild card berth and ultimately the NL pennant before getting swept by the White Sox in the World Series.

That’s the whole list. And the Nationals are on the verge of joining them, and perhaps even surpassing them. If they go 4-3 the rest of the week, they’ll get to 90 wins, something neither the ‘74 Pirates nor ‘05 Astros did.

The 1:05 PM game today is NOT Game 2. It is a make-up game for the rain postponement from Tue, 6/18 vs PHI 7:05 PM postponed to 9/24/19.
   

Game 2 is tonight at 7:05 PM.

If we win today, did we open the season going 20-31, instead of 19-31?

Right? I mean, 19-31 sounds terrible, but twenty whole wins? Meh, whatever, it's not like you were in the teens.

That only matters if the game was suspended, right? This game goes in the books as having been played today.

If it helps people cope then I think that's a good idea. The struggle is real.

Wild Card "history" only goes back to 2012...any reference to playoffs history beyond that in this case is Stoopid...

Huh, the 2003 Marlins must have had a better start than I recall if they're not in that conversation. Remember, they fired their manager after a bad start out of the gate.

19-29 on May 22 was their nadir. Six straight wins after that.

What a glorious off day this is. Game on TV with the sound muted. I get the double bonus of not listening to Bob an FP but listening to Rush instead. :whip:
