Nope


How can you watch the Kendrick HR video and not have a huge grin on your face?  That beautiful CLANK off the pole sound is music to my ears.

Anyone else feeling it's time to blow it up?

We are losing some key FAs and I'm not sure the young kids will ever have the drive to do this again since they got it so easily.

Time to trade Soto?

IIRC, it is a Cabernet/Merlot Blend that was aged in French and American Oak barrels.

True aficionados of wine ill have better tastes.

The 2017 Prisoner Wine Company Saldo Zinfandel will remind you of Juan Soto. Bold aromas of black spice, black licorice, and pepper will pair nicely with its lush flavors of dark cherries and blackberries and a smooth finish that hints of vanilla and Asian spices.

Perhaps you want something older. More vintage. Something more .... Ryan Zimmerman-like. The 2005 Faustino I Rioja Gran Reserva fits that to a tee. With bright flavors and deep spices, hints of vanilla, cherry, and berry will mingle over light orange peel acidity. It finishes with harmony and grace, just like Zim

Freaking incredible.  I love that sound off the pole screen.  Wow, that was just so amazing!

Especially since I could hear the sound in the stadium during WS game 3 when that sound was horrific.  Great to have Howie turn that sound around to something positive.

2IPAs likes Cabernet/Merlot blends - but she would particularly like getting the wine in those bottles.

Random, leftover quirk from the World Series: In Game 7, the Nationals struck out only three times. That's the only game of the entire 2019 postseason in which a team struck out three or fewer times.

People complained all year. But this team’s plate discipline was one of the unsung things about them.

This whole year was a collective minor miracle and so much luck was involved.  The hitters do get credit for NOT swinging at those high fastballs  and those breaking pitches one foot off the plate.  I never even heard of Daniel Hudson until July.  The least known of all the Hudsons.

Nationals are now DC's favorite sports team:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2019/11/21/washington-favorite-team-nationals-redskins-poll/

And that only looked at DC residents. The results would be worse if they included the suburbs in the poll.

*sigh* Y'all is tripping if you don't think this is temporary. That same poll would have listed the Caps after their championship.

Come the end of next April, everyone gonna be calling up sports talk, bragging about how the Redskins are gonna win 10 games

Define "worse." If you mean "worse for the Redskins," then I think you actually mean "better."  :)
