New York Yankees Vs Washington Nationals Series Preview
The New York Yankees journey to our nation’s capital to take on the Washington Nationals. This game will officially open the much anticipated 2020 MLB season. This series is intriguing for a variety of reasons.
To start, it features power arms against dominant bats. Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg will battle the bats of Aaron Judge and Gleyber Torres. Also, it is going to be fascinating to see Gerrit Cole take on Juan Soto.
Gerrit Cole is a newly-signed New York Yankee. He was as lights out as they come in 2019. Yet in the World Series, the 20-year-old Juan Soto seemed to have his number, taking him deep twice and making him look human. These two stars square off once again, and you will want to be locked into every at bat!
Additionally, the current success of both franchises and geographic location creates an atmosphere that will be intense. The Washington Nationals are looking to defend a Championship Title while the New York Yankees will attempt to live up World Series expectations once again. In a year where each team will play their opposite league’s respective division, there is a chance for a small “rivalry” to be born.
