My 2018 World Series Prediction

Hey!

The 2018 World Series is officially here and I’d like to go on record now:

The Los Angeles Dodgers – Game 7.

Don’t debate me.

Stay Tuned…

Now that Nationals’ fans are officially sitting at home watching October baseball…I can finally get those drafts posts published! Plus it’s never too late to throw it back 🙂

Stay tuned…

And We’re Back!

It’s been a week since my last post and sadly…nothing much had changed.

When we left off the guys got their asses handed to them in Queens the last game of the series against the Mets. They’ve been on the West Coast (cue problematic light) since last Thursday taking on the Dodgers and then the Giants.

We won the first game against the Dodgers 5-2 then lost the remaining 2 games of that series and on Monday, started a 3-game series against the Giants. And yes…we lost…and lost again. Actually we had lost 4 consecutive games at that point.

But boy did our bats come alive on Wednesday!

Yep! You read that right…we beat the Giants!! 15-2!

With that win…we sit 11-14 and 4th in the NL East.

It’s still early right?!

We’re back home now and tonight we take on the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Meet me there.

Fret Not…We Might Be On Our Way!

Wow! It was just a yesterday I posted about the string of losses the Nats were being dealt. #IBackTheNats but I’m also realistic sooooo full disclosure…I had very low expectations for how my guys would fare in New York. I mean come on…the Mets swept us during our opening series at home.

Why would anyone think being in New York but work out in our favor?!

But boy are they proving me wrong! Last night, the guys took down the Mets 8-6 and beat the Mets again tonight, 5-2.

Max earned NL Player of the Week and Bryce blasted his 8th home run while breaking the barrel of his bat! BOOM!

And while the Rockies recently took that series from us…they’re small potatoes. We have #OnePursuit and the Mets are currently standing in 1st place in the NL East…aka…in our way.

The Nats are now 9-9. Still ranked 4th in the NL East but only 4 games behind. I’m still on the fence regarding whether or not “it’s still early” but this pivot change and momentum the guys seem to have feels pretty damn good!

Also, shout out to the Phillies for taking down the Braves today!

Let’s Go Nats!

Life Is Too Short To Wear Boring Jewelry

This also happened today…on the eve of Opening Day, ALEX AND ANI launched its new MLB bracelet collection and…I want them all!! Not really, but the Nationals one is caaaaute! Unlike the old charms, the new charms are color infused and actually resemble a baseball (see the stitching detail?!). I’ll definitely be adding this piece to my Nats jewelry collection (subject to be a blog post at some point).
