Nationals succeeded by spending money

When I heard this is the first time that the Nationals made it to the world series, I was pretty skeptical.  Okay, skeptical probably isn't the right word, but I really didn't believe it.  

They have had a list of A level players over the past five years that it was hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that they had never made it this far. 

As exciting as it is for them to have made it this far, it is even more exciting for me as a Detroit Tigers fan.  That's right, as a fan of quite possibly one of the worst teams in baseball this year I am excited for the Nationals.

In fact if Houston pulls out a series win against the Yankees, I will be even more excited and it all comes down to pitching.

For so many years, the loyal fans of the Detroit Tigers watched as our bullpen blew what should have been wins for our all-star pitching staff.  Players like Verlander, Scherzer, and Porcello threw their hearts out and actually got us to the playoffs and world series, but never farther than that.

In fact, it wasn't until Verlander got traded away to Houston that he finally got the World Series ring he so richly deserved.  

The fact that former Tigers pictures Scherzer and Sanchez play for The Nationals, and Verlander plays for the Astros means that we are going to have some awesome pitching in the World Series if Houston makes it.

I actually won't even know which club to cheer for.  It will definitely be some exciting games though!

i very rarely watch baseball on TV but love it in person. However, just like i think most people with my opinion, i will watch the World Series (live if i can) and love it all. I'm happy to see the Nats on the big stage but that is only because I am from that area and it was long before they had a team there.


We are pretty lucky to have a Dodgers feeder team just down the road from where I live. My friend used to get season tickets behind home plate. There were a couple times we were within spitting distance of Tommy Lasorda.
