World Series Prediction
Really, the two best teams in the playoffs have made it to the World Series. (Though it is a shame we didn't get the Red Sox vs. Cubbies or see Manny Ramirez return to Boston...) So which team will win?
Tampa Bay. The pitching staff features the best young starters in baseball, and the bullpen is lights-out. Offense could go either way: Upton/Pena/Crawford/Longoria vs. Utley/Howard/Rollins/Burrell should be interesting.
But a team that beat Sox under immense pressure will keep rolling. Even if the Phillies are the first National League team to come into the Series with a DH (Go Stairsy!)
Yes, there are a lot of reasons to dislike the franchise: it's dismal fan support to its godawful stadium, it's decade of crapitude to its name-change under pressure from right wing zealots. But this is the better team.
And God has clearly spoken: Rays in 6.
