I think it can be considered a milestone that tonight the Nationals clinched Washington's first trip to the postseason in 79 years, and so playoff baseball will be making its first visit to Near Southeast next month.
As befits a team that has had the best record in baseball for a while now, the players and coaches are clearly still focused on the real prize: winning the NL East. But that doesn't mean that the fans can't be a bit excited about tonight's clinch. (Let me know if there was any rioting on Half Street.)
The future is now!
