Story of his Marlins tenure.
That was always overblown.

Two of the major injuries he had were getting beaned in the face in 2014 and then getting hit in the hand in 2015. He had the groin injury late in 2016 but otherwise he had been healthy since 2013 outside of freak injuries as a result of getting hit by pitches.

He has not been very healthy the last 2 years. The only reason that he was ale to play so many games last year was that he could fill the DH spot on the AL team. He had a nagging hamstring issue most of the year.

Those two injuries you mention were freak incidents, yes, but he missed a full month in 2012, 2013, and 2016. He missed time in 2011 due to leg injuries. Also, pretty sure he wasn't hit in the hand in 2015, but broke a bone from a swing. I could be wrong.

Regardless, I wouldn't say any of it was overblown. Injuries + massive slumps.

What a horrible Cards offense as well as defense.

Ozuna blew off at least one reporter after the game I see.

Yankees fans: "Stanton is a waste! We don't need him! Get him off the team!"

Also Yankees fans after their offense gets shut down without Stanton in the lineup: "Stanton is hurt again?! WE NEED HIM. If he can walk HE NEEDS TO PLAY."

Cardinals had the go-ahead run at the plate after starting off down 7-0.
This turned into a pretty exciting game.

The Washington Nationals are going to the World Series. First time in franchise history, including the Expos.

First World Series in DC since 1933.

I won't get too hyped about world series stats but hopefully.

I ain't no Nationals fan but what a fun run this has to be for them and their fans. Dominating like this in a postseason series is rare and it must be kinda cool to see if you're an actual fan of that team.
