As the Pirates beat the Braves, the Nats clinched the NL East for the first time in team history. It's such a meaningful accomplishment. I'm reminded of all the former Nats that have graced the uniform since 2005. I think of all the heartbreaking losses. I think of the teams that even I didn't have enough optimism to believe they would compete.
It's truly a special moment, one that brought me to tears. But it's only another step towards the ultimate goal.
