The saying is “To the victor goes the spoils,” not “The victor goes the spoils.”
The following sentence doesn’t make any sense: “The Nationals have every right to mock the Phillies after Phillies fans were laughing at them for proclaiming about the playoffs this year.”
Awkward sentence: “They were one team that did not admire a team that was a World Series contender.”
"Their bullpen has been great." How? "Great" is a subjective word. Baseball is full of stats. Use them.
You say: “The Nationals hit well, too. Unlike the Phillies, they know how to hit well with runners in scoring position.”
If you had researched this, you would have found that both teams are hitting .255 with runners in scoring position this year, so your point is bullshit. The internet is amazing and shit, here’s the link where I found it:
Baseball Reference also has lots of stats. People use them to prove points (see 5th paragraph)
Another awkward sentence: “This is a team that is primed to win the World Series if they would let Stephen Strasburg pitch in the playoffs.”
"They want to protect their investment after watching Mark Prior break down for pitching so many innings in 2003." Another terribly worded sentence, and furthermore, the placement of the sentence within the paragraph and wording of the sentence make it seem like Mark Prior pitched for the Expos/Nationals organization. Which he did not.
I’m sure there’s more, but I can’t read this clusterfuck of an article any more. I’m not hating on you for writing for a blog or your opinions, I’m merely complaining about your spelling, awkward sentences, and terrible grammar, something that would be solved by proofreading your writing before publishing it.
*This guy is such a Philadelphia stereotype it makes my brain feel like it’s bleeding.
Win 1 game, do it 15 more times.
RIP Junior Seau.
Remember when DeSean Jackson did one of these awhile back? Jrue Holiday steps into the role this time around, and this one may be even funnier.
