My team I think was 2014.  Very hot 2nd half.  Peak Zimmermann and healthy Strasburg, great year from Roark, plus Fister.  Very balanced line up with offense from all over.  Breakout from Rendon, good years from Werth and Desmond, healthy Span, good Ramos, good LaRoche.  Harper and RZ had injury issues, but even had the late addition of AsCab to help.  We cringe at Storen in relief of JZ, but that was  a good bullpen with Clippard and even Barrett, Stammen and Treinen in lower roles.   

I really believed in those guys as well.  Game 2 of the NLDS freaking shattered me.  Wish I hadn't let it get to me so because it clouded my ability to enjoy the 2019 run until after the game 5 win over the Dodgers.

2014 playoffs were right after I retired and we were in Maine for a week.  Listened to game one on the drive up but managed to see the others on tv.  Depressing. But not enough to
Make me go back to work.

Oh, man. Seeing Kendrick and Eaton driving, Turner celebrating with Long, Howie walking by Gomes, and Harris in some other uniform . . .
