    World Series predictions from Globe writers

    Our baseball writers make their picks for who will win the World Series:

    Christopher L. Gasper

    Winner -- Red Sox in seven. Sox go from three-ring circus in 2012 to World Series rings in 2013.

    MVP -- Jacoby Ellsbury. The impending free agent makes his last games in a Red Sox uniform memorable ones and makes himself a lot of money.

    Dan Shaughnessy


    Winner: Cardinals in Seven. Premier League and Sprint Cup Championships, plus Pulitzer Prizes, will have to do for John Henry.

    MVP: Michael Wacha. Just for keeping the games under 3 hours.

    Nick Cafardo

    Winner: Red Sox in 7. No reason to believe that this isn’t a magic season, start to finish

    MVP: David Ortiz. Big Papi will go deep a time or two at the right time.

    Peter Abraham

    Winner: Red Sox in 6. No sweep this time, but better defense and relief pitching will carry the Sox. Koji high-fives everybody at the parade.


    MVP: Jacoby Ellsbury. In his farewell to Boston before striking it rich as a free agent, Ellsbury shows off his speed and power.
