World Series winner? Nobody knows

Don’t tell me you know, because you don’t know. Nobody knows who will win the 2013 World Series.

People ask me, “Do the Red Sox have a chance?” The answer, of course, is “Yes.” The Red Sox could easily win, but so could Detroit, Oakland, Tampa Bay, Atlanta, St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Los Angeles. So, yes, I’m eliminating Texas, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh. I don’t think any of those three could win three series in succession in this field, but the Pirates’ playoff presence is proof low budget teams can succeed.
