Baseball is finally here and it is hard to imagine a better game to kick off the season than the defending champs against the big bad Yankees. Let the games begin.
This is a great pitching matchup too. Don’t expect too much hard contact here.
New York Yankees
Even in the shortened season the Yankees are going to be very formidable, perhaps even more so than expected given that they used the time to get some players healthy.
Cole was simply awesome for the Astros last season. He probably should have won the AL Cy Young. He now gets to prove he was worth all that money.
Cole might be the best starter in the league but sometimes transitions can be tough. If he falters at all he is backed by a lineup that can mash with any in the Majors. Nobody scored more runs last season and there is no reason to expect much dropoff.
In fact, they might be better if they get more from Giancarlo Stanton this season.
Kudos to the Nats for breaking through last season and taking the World Series. It was more of a relief than a triumph though, perhaps.
Repeating is going to be difficult even though they probably have the best 1,2,3 starters in baseball. Scherzer is awesome and I am not expecting much rust.
Last year Juan Soto exploded. The talent is all there but this is still a very young player. If he takes a step back at all they might struggle to score with Anthony Rendon now in L.A.
There is a lot to like about the Nats chances but they are probably a little downgraded from a year ago.

Free New York Yankees vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
No clue the pandemic impact, how can we know. I do know that taking the Nats at home (I know) with Mad Max on the hill is a value I am not going to pass up.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Nationals +110
There are not going to be many games where you can get that number in this situation. I am banking on the hitting being ahead of the pitching to start the season. Washington wins a low scoring affair.
