A FINAL WORD

Aside from staying healthy and prepping for the playoffs to come, for those of you going, just enjoy one last weekend of the year.

More from District on Deck

Yes, Pedro Severino can still win his way onto the roster. You would think Sammy Solis is already there. It is a shame Stephen Drew and Brian Goodwin never came back to regular season action. This series is about taking a deep breath and giving fans a hearty thank you.

A bad throw Saturday or chasing strikes on Sunday is not a predictor of how the Nats match with the Cubs. Instead, think of this as another endless Spring Training with the real fun coming next week. Everyone is itching for meaningful baseball, just do not expect it over the weekend.

Stand every time Werth bats as this is likely it for him here after the season. Marvel at how Gonzalez found his groove again. Hope Harper crushes one into the seats and do not complain over blown leads or Baker’s moves. Save the angst for the NLDS.
