The Nationals’ historic World Series run, summed up in four tweets

In case you haven’t heard, the 2019 MLB season is officially in the books. We had the pleasure of watching it end with a World Series Game 7, which also included a late-game comeback by the newly-crowned world champions, the Washington Nationals. Once Daniel Hudson struck out Michael Brantley to officially begin the celebrating, tons of incredible stats and facts were produced about the Nats pushing past the mighty Houston Astros.

By: Matt Musico | October 30, 2019 If you could put together a starting lineup full of baseball’s best players, who would be included?

By: Matt Musico | October 24, 2019 Baseball is a funny game, isn’t it? Heading into the 2019 World Series, general consensus was that the Houston Astros were favorites to win their second title in three seasons over the Washington Nationals. Even though the Nats were hot and swept the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS, they had a week-long layoff to potentially get rusty, while the Astros won a hard-fought ALCS against the New York Yankees in six games.

Six MLB hitters who must build off a strong second half

By: Matt Musico | October 23, 2019 With 162 games played in about 180 days, MLB’s regular season is a marathon, not a sprint.

Sometimes, all it takes is one sequence of events to completely turn things around.
