Forty-three years/ten seasons after the Ted Williams led the 1969 Washington Senators to 86 wins, D.C. has another winning season again as the Washington Nationals clinched their 82 win with today’s 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs.
We waited a long time for this, not just since 2005 when the Nats came and were 81-81, but for most of us, our whole lives. Let’s hope the is a regular occurrence for a long-time. I think it will be.
