Well, The Washington Nationals season is effectively over. It was a real crash...
Baseball can break your heart. It just isn't like other sports.
In American football, a team can go 14-2 or 2-14. The better team just always seems to win over the season by quite a bit and every time. The good teams win and the bad teams are horrid.
In Basketball, the best teams are so far above the worst teams that you can predict the winners ahead of time easily.
Baseball just doesn't go like that. The best teams only reach 60% wins; the worst, well, let's say 33%. On any given series, the same teams will have games of 14-2, 5-6, and 1-2. There is almost no sense to it.
And the sad part is that so many favorite players will be traded away as a result. And some new ones will arrive.
It drives me crazy.
