I said the Yankeees would lose to the Angels.
I said the Padres didn't have a prayer.
That's the good news.
To my credit, I DID say Houston-Atlanta would be the trickiest of the four.
Boston's loss didn't surprise me, but the sweep did. I think I gave the BoSox extra credit as defending champs, instead of chumps.
I guess I'll stick with the Angels, although their travel from NYC to LA to CHI worries me greatly.
St. Louis was always my #2 seed, so I see them overcoming Houston in a tough series.
Regardless, the winner of the World Series will come out of the National League.
I realize that that unless the Cardinals take it, the World Series will be won by either a team that has NEVER been in the Fall Classic or by a team that hasn't been in since the other two teams were created. The Red Sox broke their "curse" last year, so statistically speaking, we have a 75% chance of SOMEBODY breaking their streak of futility.
