Nick Ceraso, Staff Writer – Washington Nationals
For this year’s playoffs, I’m rooting for the Washington Nationals. Yes, it is a strange sentence for me to type, that I want to see the Mets division rivals win the World Series. However, I have a few reasons this year. A lot of former Mets will be playing in the playoffs, but my favorite among them is still Daniel Murphy. Outside of Washington, the entire National League East was simply terrible this season, so in a large way, the Nationals need to be the one slight hope on making the NL East look good after the entire division has been a mess. Lastly, earlier in the season on a radio show, I picked the Washington Nationals over the Cleveland Indians to win the World Series, so I definitely will be wanting to see them win in the hopes of being right for the second straight season.
