The best overall team in baseball against a team that should’ve been in the World Series years ago. What’s at stake? The Astros are trying to cement their status as the team of the future. The Nationals are fighting to preserve their history-altering run.
From the Giants fan perspective, you can’t go wrong rooting for either team. Both have obvious strengths (starting pitching). They’re neither the Yankees nor the Dodgers. The Nationals feel like good representatives for the National League. Doug correctly pointed out that they’ve been the team most worth rooting for all along.
