Three out of five!

Third baseman Pablo Sandoval hits the ground after catching a foul pop fly for the last out of the 2014 World Series, as the Giants erupt from their dugout.

World Series champs for the third time in the last five years (every other year), those “scratch ’em ’till they bleed to death” San Francisco Giants have done it again. Not quite a dynasty yet, but you have to go back fifteen years or so to find a team better at consistently winning games when they really count, over several years, than does this group of characters. When all was said and done, it came down to having the best World Series pitcher in a long, long time on your side.

For the record, I picked the Giants in six. Matt also actually picked the Giants but then went with his “logical opposites theory” to go with the Royals. Harold and Clem, well they were just patently off the deep end 🙂

Predictions for 2015 and 2016 are now open. For 2015 I’m picking anyone except the Giants, and for 2016, I’m going Giants 🙂

  1. Not sure I can pick a winner quite yet, but the Astros, and perhaps also the Cubs, will win a lot more games than they have in a long time. This WS makes me think that we are finally past the juice era, only one homer in the last five games.

  2. Off the deep end? Will admit the water is up to my knees… but deep end?

    So congrats – you had the best pick and were pretty close to nailing it.

    Future pics? 2015 – the Red Sox rebound a bit (how could they not?) and I’ll go so far as to pick them for a wild card in the AL. But I’m liking the Orioles to come back for another try at the BIG time.

    The NL Central will again send two teams into the playoffs, and will continue to flirt with having a third (both wildcards??). I imagine Milwaukee will not fade so drastically in ’15 and if the Pirates are on top of their game next year they could join the Cardinals for a chance to play in October.

    So – why not go to the mat… the 2015 WS will be one for the birds: Orioles, Cardinals.

Have at it
