Don’t expect the playoffs to be easy. That’s not what they are. The playoffs are the final test for the best of the best. The playoffs are impossible, improbable and many other words that begin with “I”.
Right now, the biggest question in NatsTown other than the game one starter is who the optimal round one opponent. And while it would be relieving to see San Francisco instead of St. Louis, this is the best ballclub in Washington since 1930. They own an incredible team e.r.a. and a lineup with no holes.
But even so, the playoffs are hard. By definition, you are playing the best teams in baseball. It is not an easy task. So don’t worry who they have to play. Don’t worry about the history or the lack of experience. Just get ready, get excited, and enjoy the ride.
