The Washington Nationals have won the NL East three times in the last seven years. And in each of those years, they failed to make it out of the National League Divisional series. So how did they counter that? Well, in 2019, the Nationals finished second in the NL East, and garnered a wild-card spot. They proceeded to beat the Brewers, Dodgers, Cardinals and Astros on route to the franchises’ first World Series title. To say the Nationals suffered from a World Series hangover would be an understatement.
