So the Nationals took one step towards overcoming “The Curse of Youppi!”, which is something that I made up last night. Originally it was that the Nationals would never win a playoff series until baseball returns to Montréal. Now it’s that the Nats will never make the World Series until the Expos live once again.

The last time (heck, the only time) the Nationals ever advanced in a playoff series, Steve Rogers threw a complete game 3-0 shutout and drove in two runs himself. And they were the Expos.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Even without the Cubs, playoff baseball is great.
