The Nationals have spent most of this offseason celebrating their first World Series in franchise history. As a team that overcame a 19-31 start to the season, made it to the playoffs as a Wild Card team and trailed in all five elimination postseason games it played in, the Nationals have also been unafraid to laugh at those who counted them out.
In February, the team posted a video of players reading mean tweets from May 24, when they were 19-31 and had one of the worst records in baseball. They followed that up with a video in which they read tweets from Braves fans relishing in their NL East title.
On Wednesday, they were back at it again. This time, they read tweets from the first few innings of the Wild Card Game.

The highlight of the video was easily Juan Soto, who responded to a comment that the Nationals couldn't win in the playoffs by looking down at the World Series patch on his shoulder and laughing.
If you're a baseball fan who may or may not have posted on Twitter venting about the Nationals, you may want to watch these videos… just in case.
