Friday night at Nationals Park, we’ll see something we haven’t seen in more than 30 years: playoff baseball between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Nationals. 

Of course, the last time these two teams met in the postseason, in the 1981 National League Championship Series, the Nationals were known as the Montreal Expos.

Nationals manager Dusty Baker was a 32-year-old star for the Dodgers that season, while Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was nine years old. Most of the players about to partake in the National League Division Series between the two clubs had yet to be born.

It’s been a long time.

How do these two clubs stack up? Which team will be the last one standing when the NLDS comes to an end? Let’s take a look.
