Next week, the Washington Nationals will begin a playoff series for the fourth time in six years. They have yet to win a series. With a healthy Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg—plus Max Scherzer, Daniel Murphy, and others—this year could be different. I wrote about it in my final regular season column for CBS Local. Starting next Thursday, I’ll be recapping the playoffs with a “Five Things You Missed” column.
Weather permitting, the regular season wraps up this weekend, and the race for the second wild card spot in the American League is going down to the wire. I recap the playoff picture, the Harper-Papelbon scuffle, and more in my latest for CBS Local.
From the silly to the important, I’ve got the latest in MLB news covered, which includes a phenom reaching another major milestone and a record-setting extra-inning game. Read all about it in my latest Five Things column for CBS Local.
