The Nats’ season is officially done. Most players are headed towards home, but a few decided to stick around the D.C. area to root on some other Washington sports teams.
Max Scherzer, Daniel Murphy, and a few others ventured out on Saturday for the Washington Capitals’ home opener against the New York Islanders.
Scherzer and Michael A. Taylor stuck around on Sunday for the Redskins game, where they were apparently joined by Joe Ross.
After that, it was time to head home, no matter if it was down south or out west.
No matter where they’re going, the players have, for the most part, packed their bags and gone home. Nats Park is quiet, Jayson Werth is tending to his vegetables, and Mike Rizzo is probably scheming moves for the offseason somewhere.
With all the autographs signed and all the D.C. sports games attended, all the loose ends have been tied up — except one. That loose end being the inevitable, dreaded thank-you-note which unfortunately means the season is over, in addition to the fact that the Nats did not win the World Series. Get em’ next year.
