Here's a cool piece from Yahoo sports predicting a bunch of MLB scenarios. I'm adapting it for us here (starting by taking out AL questions, cuz whatever). And yes, that's Jeff Passan, one of the best baseball writers on the planet, picking the Nationals to go to the World Series.

A player coming to the Cardinals is like a person coming to a confessional from a fans point of view. All sins are forgiven my son :D
