Biggest World Series X-Factors

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterOctober 21, 2013

We didn’t see that coming.

Join along with MLB Lead Writer Zach Rymer and MLB Analyst Gabe Zaldivar, as they take their best look at some guys from the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals who might walk out from the shadows and steal the limelight on the biggest stage in the sport.  

So far this has been a phenomenally entertaining postseason. We have seen guys like David Ortiz and Carlos Beltran place themselves front and center at a crucial time, while others like Yasiel Puig bumbled their way to an early vacation.

Now it’s time to sift through the remaining players and decide who has what it takes to give their team an added boost at the most pressing time.

Of course, this is just the start of a beautiful discussion, so go ahead and get in on the conversation in the comments section below.
