SEEN AND HEARD AT CITIZENS BANK PARK

PHILADELPHIA — When a team ends its season at home, players tend to linger around the clubhouse after the game to say their goodbyes and pack their bags. On the road, it’s a different story.

The Nationals clubhouse was a ghost town within 30 minutes of the final out of yesterday’s game, with players quickly showering and packing to catch direct flights back to their hometowns.

A handful of players who were taking the train back to the District hung around a bit longer. But just about everyone was ready for the offseason to begin.

QUOTABLE

”THE OFFSEASON IS OVER NOW. THE SEASON STARTS TOMORROW FOR US.”

— Nationals general manager Jim Bowden
