No matter who wins, this will certainly be a Fall Classic for the ages.

And then the big question is will the road teams make it a perfect 7 for 7? Or will the cycle be broken tonight? That will be decided in the winner take all series tonight.

Max Scherzer is undefeated in the postseason (3-0 in five appearances). Zach Greinke has yet to taste postseason victory (0-2 in four appearances). No prediction (since I stink at it); I'll go as far as to say it'll be close.

I don't believe this, as Bob used to say on The Price is Right, this is another historic moment! Every game has won by the road team and can never be broken in a 7-game series but in the end, the World Series champions are your 2019 Washington Nationals!

Congratulations. Let's hope for another exciting season next year. That leaves the Mariners as the only MLB team to never make the World Series. Way to go.

Congratulations to the 2019 Washington Nationals on winning their 1st ever world championship.  The Nationals are the 1st wild card team since the 2014 Giants to win the World Series.

Much like the LDS, Howie Kendrick was the offensive hero for the Nationals and Patrick Corbin pitched 3 strong innings out of the bullpen as the Nationals, 1ce 19-31 have their title.

This was the 4th consecutive World Series game 7 to be won by the road team and the 6th consecutive World Series to be clinched on the road.

A decade of postseason frustration just got wiped out.
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 last time a Washington-based team won the World Series, Calvin Coolidge was in the White House. Props to the Nationals!

After 50 years, the legacy of failure of the Expos/Nationals is over.

As a Nationals fan, this is easily my proudest moment! And how appropriate is was that on Halloween eve, they vanquished the ghosts of 1924 and 1994 to win their first World Series :-D

Nationally, game 7 was the lowest rated of all time, but locally in Washington and Houston, it predictably blew everyone else out of the water. In Washington, the ninth inning alone drew a share of 74. In Houston, the game notched a 63 share.

Well it makes sense given that WTTG (the Washington D.C affiliate) and KRIV (the Houston affiliate) are both owned and operated by the network itself. And they are going to make a lot of money out of it as a whole.
