OK, here it is and I wonder if anyone cares. You begin the season with a 17-39 record and basically stink. Then, by the fifth month of a seven-month season, you win; and then in the playoffs, you knock off the best teams and win the Series. That's the Washington Nationals in a nutshell. How to explain the sudden power and pitching it took to win?

Other baseball players have done this, too. There's A-Roid, Barry Bonds, Ron Gant, etc. These guys became heroes overnight after forgotten, bad-stats seasons. Steroids, isn't it obvious? And I wonder if anyone cares.

Please check your facts, sir. It was 19-31 not 17-39. No one, not even these amazing Nats could climb out of a hole that deep.
