-Anthony DiComo has a great story up on Ryan Zimmerman, the face of the Nationals franchise finally getting a crack at the postseason.
-Columnist Lyle Spencer writes that Ian Desmond is breaking out on the postseason stage.
-Bill Ladson takes a look at the “Goon Squad” on the Nats’ bench, which helped them win Game 1 and made this successful season possible despite all the injuries.
-There is a ton of stuff in the Nationals notebook, including Mike Fiammetta’s writeup of Bryce Harper’s approach through his first two postseason games. Plenty of other news and notes in there — Michael Morse is sticking with his agents, the game times for the rest of the series, NLCS tickets on sale and an update on the Sun Monster.
-And finally, the Nationals are excited about Washington’s first playoff game since 1933 for themselves as well as their fans. Check out the chart to see how other things have changed since the last postseason game in D.C.
