Most every baseball fan believes this is Boston’s best team ever.Why the Red Sox win the World Series – Even if opponents get to Boston’s starters early, the Red Sox bats and bullpen make up for it.Why the Red Sox won’t win the World Series – Boston’s played at such a high-level this entire season that one must wonder if they’re just about to hit a losing streak right as the playoffs start.Houston won it all last season behind excellent pitcher, great hitting, and zero managing mistakes by A.J. Hinch.Why the Astros win the World Series – The Stros played as if they had hit an iceberg in the first part of the second half of the season. But, since then, they’ve gotten hot. In fact, they might be the hottest team in MLB heading into the postseason.  Why the Astros won’t win the World Series – On paper, the Astros should contend for another World Series. No team has won back-to-back World Series since the Yankees pulled off the 3-peat from 1998 – 2000, though. Is Houston good enough to buck history?Los Angeles opened the season as the second choice behind the New York Yankees and Houston Astros to win the World Series. L.A. lost to Houston in last season’s Fall Classic.Why the Dodgers win the World Series – Like the Astros in the American League, the Dodgers have finally hit their stride. L.A. is playing better right now than they have all season long.  Why the Dodgers won’t win the World Series – As of Sep. 24, the Dodgers have yet to win the NL West Division. The Dodgers could miss the playoffs all together.The Cubbies won the World Series in 2016 breaking the Curse of the Goat, which had lasted since 1908.Why the Cubs win the World Series – The Cubbies traded for Cole Hamels. Hamels is one of the top postseason pitchers of the past 20 seasons. Hamels should serve as Chicago’s second ace after Jon Lester in the MLB Playoffs.Why the Cubs won’t win the World Series – Like the Dodgers in the NL West, Chicago has yet to win the NL Central. There’s a chance Chicago doesn’t even make it to the postseason.Cleveland entered last season as a huge favorite to win the World Series. They didn’t even get out of the Divisional Playoffs. This season they’re hoping to sneak up on Houston and Boston.Why the Tribe wins the World Series – The Tribe sewed up the AL Central before the All-Star Break. They should be the most rested team in this year’s playoffs.Why the Tribe won’t win the World Series – Cleveland’s usually lockdown bullpen ranked 23rd this season with a 4.50 ERA. The Tribe can’t expect their starters to pitch longer than 7 innings off short rest in the playoffs…can they?The Yankees secured a spot in the AL Wildcard Game. That game takes place on Oct. 2.Why the Yankees win the World Series – This year’s preseason World Series favorite as of Sep. 24 have the second best record in MLB after the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros.Why the Yankees won’t win the World Series – If New York wins the wildcard game on Tuesday, they must go through either the Boston Red Sox or Houston Astros or both to even make it to the World Series.
