WS victory.

If this is the actual World Series, I'm pretty sure I'd be making a road trip to Milwaukee for a game. My buddy that works for the Cubs and I have been Rays fans for about 6 years now (we "adopted" them as our AL team in college), and that would be a fun time.

Rangers and Tigers, then Tigers

Phillies and Brewers, then Phillies

Tigers to win it with one pitcher just like the Dodgers did with Orel and Kirk Gibson.

I'd love to see the Brewers in it, however.

Anyone but the Yankees.

If you could get down to Tampa, they'd pay you to go to the game.

I know. I have already gotten over my rookie closer blowing a 3 run lead for the Halo's that might have propelled them into the playoffs.

Gotta go with...

Rays & Yanks - Yanks win

Cards & Brewers - Cards win


Cards & Yanks - Cards win and Pujols gets a big, fat contract from St Louis.

No, this is not the likely outcome, but it possible.

If you like the chances of these outcome, there is money to be made: Cards sitting at 10-1.

Phillies +160
Yankess +350
Rangers +600
Tigers +700
Brewers +800
Cardinals +1000
Rays +1000
Dbacks +1200

Oh, I'm here. No big sadness for me today. I fully expected the Sox not to make it, and am actually glad they didnt - they didnt deserve to get in by someone else winning, and they couldnt do it themselves. Maybe this will wake them up to some of the issues they have - something has to.

As to predictions:

Rangers over Rays

Tigers over Yankees

Phillies over Cards

Brewers over D'Backs

Tigers over Rangers

Brewers over Phillies
