For the first time since 2016, the Dodgers will not be playing in the World Series.  Who should Dodger fans root for in the fall classic?

The World Series will kick off later this evening and for the first time since 2016, the Dodgers will not be participating in the fall classic.  Although some Dodger fans may be too bitter from the NLDS defeat to the Nationals, this is the World Series and every fan of the sport should watch what should be a very good series.  This is going to be a clash of some great starting pitching.

Unfortunately for Dodger fans, the choice on who to root for may come down to which bitter ending are you over or still angry about the most?  The Nationals ended the Dodgers season less than two weeks ago while the Astros ruined the Dodgers’ first World Series appearance since 2017.

You can root for the Nationals so that LA lost to the eventual World Series champion, or you can root for the Astros so you don’t have to wonder about if the Dodgers might have beaten the Astros too.  Here is a guide on reasons to root for each team to win the World Series.
