The 2015 team has been one of the city’s best in recent memory, winning 97 games and earning the right to play in the National League’s do-or-die wild-card game against the Pirates.
But how did they get here?
It was a season filled with magic (literally and figuratively), stars, and the type of hope and expectations that have been missing from this franchise for a decade.
