"I'm sorry. We'll make it up to 'em next year. It was a fun ride. Lot of character. Really enjoyed managing this year. You know, I've been on the other end of the stick where there's one out, and you live on, and we couldn't get it. We had the right people there, just got a little too cautious."

NLDS Game 5: Cardinals 9, Nationals 7. Gutted. One strike away in the 9th, and somehow the wrong team ended up popping champagne and spraying beer in a clubhouse at Nationals Park.
There's heartbreak, and then there's what happened tonight.
Amazing season. How many days until pitchers and catchers report?
