For the first time in history, Teddy defeated his Mount Rushmore brethren and captured his first race victory. It capped an incredible season for the Nats, who ended the season with baseball's best record, 98-64.
From Gio Gonzalez's coming up party, the rookies Bryce Harper, Steve Lombardozzi, and Tyler Moore were better than advertised, and Ian Desmond and Adam LaRoche were legitimate top ten MVP guys. And that leaves out Ryan Zimmerman, Jordan Zimmermann, and Stephen Strasburg, who all had great seasons.
All of the comebacks and clutch moments have been an omen for something special. So was Roger Berndina's amazing catch in Houston. But nothing has been a clearer sign than Teddy's win.
