Can The Nats Win The Series?

7 reasons why they can

Can The Nats Win The Series?

While some might see this as a long shot, I like the Washington Nationals' odds of taking it all the way. The Dodgers will be an easy opponent to pass. The Dodgers have carried both series against the Nats this year. With it being tight overall, the Dodgers were 4-3 against the Nats. This season both series came before the Nats really had a groove, in August, through the end of the season. After this 5 game series, they will have to take on the winner between the St. Louis, Cardinals and the Atlanta Braves. The Nationals preferably want St. Louis, as Atlanta has been more of a struggle for the Nats. Ultimately, I think the Nats' toughest challenge will be themselves, and beyond that, if they can beat the Dodgers, it will most likely be the Astros or Yankees. I like the Nat's odds.

1. Max Scherzer is the guy you want pitching when healthy.

The Nats probably have the best pitchers between the Dodgers, Astros and them. I believe with the Nats' hitting ability, they can do this.

2. Strassburg is one of the best pitchers in all of Baseball.

A perfect game in the wild card proved his worth, not that he hasn't been hot all season.

3. Trea Turner's ability to be anywhere and everywhere to make a play.

Trea turner's constancy on both offense and defense is going to be essential.

4. The play making skills with people like Anthony Rendon.

Anthony Rendon looks to be showing age, but still has a high motor and can be big in the teams success.

5. The Tenacity of the team.

The Nats are very determined as it's been heartbreaking every postseason.

6. Ryan Zimmerman can still hit.

While he hasn't been starting 1st base lately, he has still hit well when called upon.

7. Most Importantly, the 20 year old savior.

Juan Soto is 20 years old but has a lot of fire in him. He made a huge play to win the wildcard, and he is earning some major respect. He has to hit more consistent. He has done well this season but struggled last night until the game-winning play.
