Juan Soto and the Nationals have won the World Series.
Capping off an improbable run, the Washington Nationals have won their first World Series title in franchise history. Going 2-0 with a 2.51 ERA in the series, starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg took home World Series MVP honors.
The Houston Astros fell just short of their second World Series title in three years, falling in seven games to the Nats. Questionable decision making will haunt members of an Astros organization that was heavily favored.
New York Yankees
Seemingly matched against a better team, the New York Yankees fell to the Houston Astros in six games in the ALCS. It would be difficult to imagine the Yankees not making another postseason run next year.

Los Angeles Dodgers
Disappointment has struck the Los Angles Dodgers once again, as the team fell short of its third straight appearance in the World Series. The Dodgers are still seeking their first World Series championship since 1988.
