The Washington Nationals’ historic postseason run has drawn several comparisons over the last few weeks to the 2018 Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals.
Ahead of the Nationals’ decisive Game Four of the NCLS, Max Scherzer addressed the media and said that it was too early to compare the team to the Capitals.
“We can’t compare ourselves to them yet because they won the whole thing. We still have work to do in front of us,” Scherzer said.
Scherzer added that “[c]razy things can happen, so it’s going to take us to bring the same type of energy and effort to be able to get this done.”
After the Nats 7-4 win in Game Four over the St. Louis Cardinals, they now have the opportunity to win the whole thing in the World Series. It is the first time that the Nationals have won a National League pennant and made it to the World Series. They will face either the New York Yankees or Houston Astros for the chance to make even more franchise history.
As Scherzer said, the Nationals still have work to do. But it’s okay to believe.
