Sure, it would have been better if ex-Tigers pitchers Max Scherzer, Anibal Sanchez and Fernando Rodney had celebrated a World Series victory in Detroit.
Of course we can dream.
Instead, on Wednesday night the three Washington Nationals celebrated in downtown Houston at Minute Maid Park after defeating the Astros 6-2 in a comeback win.
Scherzer started Game 7 and gave up two runs. But the Nationals, who were underdogs in the series, bounced back to win.
After the game, Scherzer, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, told Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports:
"It just means I'm just part of the greatest team of 2019."
Justin Verlander, another ex-Tiger, didn't pitch that great in the series for the Astros. He's already got a ring with the Astros, so we can't feel that sorry for him.
