The point was about on-field leader.

I liked Maggs way more in 2004 too, but the Hurt was still the leader, don't know how you can argue against that.

The point stands that if you tell a Nats fan in 2018 that they will win the 2019 World Series without Harper, they'd think you're nuts.

And if someone told us in 04 that we'd win the WS without Frank being on the playoff roster at all, and only in a small amount of regular season games, we'd also be in disbelief.

In January 2001, I'm sure some Seattle fans were lamenting that Unit, Jr AND Arod were all gone. And if you told them they'd return to the LCS that season anyway, they'd smack you.

I was a doubter, but maybe, just maybe we can win with pitching, defense and fundamentals.
