MLB 2017: Peerless Postseason Prognostications

It's simple. I want to see the Nats win a World Series. Is that too much to ask?

I think not! 

As the NL East Division Champs, the Washington Nationals have a legitimate shot at going all the way this year. Here is what the playoff bracket looks like on Day One:

Below is my fearless prediction, posted on the first night of post-season play.

I'll come back and grade my guesses after each milestone. May the best team win!

Play ball! 

Go, Nats!

One Pursuit!

Update after both Wild Card games: on track for a Nats World Series Championship! #OnePursuit!

Update after the Division Championships--and the total collapse of my bracket. The Nats will have to watch the World Series again this year. Go, GO, 'STROS!

UPDATE after the Stros win to force GAME 7 in the ALCS.

Even though my Nats are out and the callous owners somehow saw fit to let Dusty Baker go (WHAT!?), I still have a shot at 50% on my bracket. I predict the Astros will defeat the Yankees tonight (Oct 21, 2017) and then go on to topple the Dodgers in the World Series.
