Coming close in postseason awards brings back memories of Washington Nationals’ disappointments...

I have to admit, I was rooting for Max Scherzer to win the Cy Young award. Hard as it was to see him wearing Dodger blue, I was still pulling for him personally in the postseason, and beyond.

Seeing the most exciting pitcher to take the mound at Nationals Park come in third behind Corbin Burnes and Zack Wheeler was almost as painful as any of those four unlikely runs Scherzer was charged with in Game 5 against the Cubs in 2017.

I was also disappointed to see Dusty Baker finish third in the AL Manager of the Year voting.
