“I’m Home Mama” Part II — A Ballplayer’s Blog

My parents and I hightailed it for Hartford at 7am from my host families house in New Market, MD for my Double-A debut. I slept for the entire ride and my parents dropped me off at the hotel in Newington where I met up with my man Cole Billingsley, another Frederick Key that got the […]

“I’m Home Mama” Part I — A Ballplayer’s Blog

2019 was a wild ride. So much so that I’m not sure where to begin with talking about the year. The last time I blogged feels like years ago, but it was the second week in May, in the middle of the best month of baseball I have ever had by far. Since that time, […]

My 2019 World Series Prediction (for Entertainment Purposes Only)

download

 

Four years ago I mustered the courage to publish my MLB Post-Season predictions, not because I thought I could actually handicap but so I wouldn’t be “that guy”.  We all know that someone who doesn’t talk about sports but comes into work the day after a game, especially an upset, and proclaims they “knew it would happen”.  I wanted to have a record of my thoughts and predictions for all to see and poke fun at me if need be.

WARNING: I am actually lousy at this so do not rely on what I write.  If you are one to put a few coins down on these games I am sure you either know more that I do or you have other, more reliable, sources of information.  Just like those football sheets say, this is “for entertainment purposes only”.

The 2019 World Series features the American League Champions, the Houston Astros, playing host to the National League Champions, the Washington Nationals in the best of seven series that starts tonight at 8 pm ET on FOX.  The pitching match-ups in this series look to be exceptional; the series should be nothing but entertaining.

My colleague at Birds Watcher, Jesse Morrison, penned a piece today giving fans three reasons to root for the Nationals.

I don’t need any reasons as I’ve ridden the Nationals so far and I will not stop now.  I’ve picked them every step of the way and I am still #TeamNationals.  I really like the way the Nationals are playing sans Bryce Harper; they have become a team that doesn’t seem to wait for Harper to come through in a big moment.

My predictions is:

The Washington Nationals will defeat the Houston Astros in 6 games   ✔️

The NATIONALS won the World Series 4 games to 3.
