Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
This is one of those rare opportunities for the Mets to flash some offense with the Nationals rolling the dice with their reliever, Sean Nolin, as a starter.
Washington got away with the skin of their teeth in the opener, but that won’t be the case in Saturday’s rematch with the Mets clamping down defensively and finally getting their offense rolling.
I’m taking the Mets to bounce back.
