Rich Lederer has collected World Series predictions from several past Baseball Analyst contributors. He asked each participant to comment on the winner (1), the series length (2), and why (3)?
Here is my prediction.
J.C. Bradbury, economist and operator of Sabernomics.com:
2. 7 games
3. I believe the Rays have the edge with starting pitching.
I was a bit briefer than most with my explanation, but I think it’s really that simple. The teams appear to be quite equal, but I think the Rays superior starting pitching will win out. I’m looking forward to an exciting Series!
