As we push a little past the halfway mark of the 2019 season, check out three bold predictions for the rest of the Washington Nationals’ 2019.

To this point, the 2019 Washington Nationals’ season has been an anomaly. Washington came into the season as heavy favorites in the National League East, but 69 games into the year the Nationals sit 8.5 games back of the division-leading Atlanta Braves.

Recently, Washington has been playing much better baseball and are starting to look like the team we all expected them to be this season. Winners of 13 out of their last 19 the Nationals seem to have flipped the script, but the question remains was it too little too late?

Washington is in the midst of the biggest homestand of their season as they have seven games with the division-rival Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves.

If the Nationals’ really want to turn their season around and make a chargeback into postseason contention, it is imperative they have success this week against their two division foes.

At this time of the year, rumors start to spread about teams possibly moving players at the deadline or being buyers or sellers. At this time, Washingtons’ trade deadline fate is unknown, and the upcoming week of baseball likely will play a huge part in deciding what path they go down.

As we near closer to that fateful week at the end of July, check out three bold predictions for the rest of the Washington Nationals’ 2019 season.
