2019 Nationals Astros World Series Predictions

The wait is over, the World Series is here. We can talk until the cows come home about how the teams match up, the old guys fueling the Nats run, the power of the Baby Shark, what life was like in D.C. the last time the World Series was played here, who the last real champion in Washington baseball was, or what it all means for Ryan Zimmerman. But now, it’s time to pick a winner.

The WTOP Sports guys give you our predictions for the series, the MVP, and one bold prediction for the Fall Classic.
