Houston and St. Louis are my picks, both in six.

Hard to believe this, but it's been 55 years since the last Cardinals-Yankees World Series...and St. Louis remains the only team to have beaten the pinstriped guys more times than lost against them (3-2). The Cardinals won in 1926, 1942 and 1964; the Yankees in 1928 and 1943.

Sanchez doesn't get the no-hitter but Washington does take Game 1.

The Marlins also have more wins than losses against the Yankees in the
 World Series.  Miami is 1-0, beating the Yankees in 2003.

And Washington takes game 2 on the road with a 3-1 win. I feel like their turnaround season is giving confidence they may win the whole thing.

On paper, it looks good for Washington with the next three at home (third of those three if needed). But we've seen recently that playing before the home crowd doesn't mean squat. Should be interesting.

In that case, same would go for the Diamondbacks, who beat New York in 2001.

"Floater! Center field! The Diamondbacks are World Champions! " :)

If I take off my Diamondbacks hat and put on my MLB hat though, the 2001 World Series, along with the 2004 ALCS, is why I consider Maraino Rivera to be overrated. Rivera literally killed the Yankees dynasty of the late 90s and early 00s by blowing the 2001 World Series and is also a big reason the Yankees became the only team to ever blow a 3-0 series lead in the 2004 ALCS.

Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

The Yankees take Game 1. The home team has yet to win an LCS game.

And both home teams have been shut out in game 1.

Give me a break. He's the all time leader in saves, both regular and post-season, and is the only player to be voted into the Hall of fame unanimously. Even the greatest players of all time have down moments.

The Astros and the Yankees are tied at 1 game apiece as Carlos Correa hits a walk off home run in the bottom of 11th to give the Astros game 2.

It has been 95 since since Washington last won a World Series (by the original Senators team that is now in Minnesota), and 86 since it won a pennant (again, by the same Senators). And because the Expos/Nationals have never won an NL pennant in their 50 years of existence, if they win the NLCS, they'd kill two birds with one stone. Sure, Washington has the longest championship drought (in fact, 24 years longer than Cleveland's last World Series win), but on both counts, the current droughts should be marked with an asterisk, as they span two Senators teams (with the second one now in Texas) and the Nationals.

Teddy, I'm sorry to say that you're wrong, that if the Nats win the NLCS, they'll kill two birds with one stone. If they win the NLCS, it is by no means guaranteed that they'll win the World Series. They could win the pennant, but lose the World Series. Thus if that happens, they'll only break one drought, but not the other one.

Washington is one win away from the World Series.
