 President Obama’s prediction for the 2009 World Series is the St. Louis Cardinals and the New York Yankees.

He tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the Cardinals are coming on strong. And he says slugging first baseman Albert Pujols is “unbelievable.” Pujols leads the big leagues in home runs, is tied for first in runs batted in, and is second in batting average in the National League.

As for the American League, Obama says the Yankees are doing well. And he singles out New York shortstop Derek Jeter for breaking Lou Gehrig’s team record for career hits. Obama calls Jeter “a classic.”

In the Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll that was release don Friday, many baseball fans World Series prediction was the St. Louis Cardinals vs. New York Yankees. Also, about three in five expect A-Rod to avoid another postseason slump.
