MLB Opening Day: Who Do the Experts Have Winning It All?
Will One of the MLB Opening Day Teams Play for the World Series?
Baseball season is finally here! Will your favorite team win their division and possibly the World series? Let's take a look at what the experts think.
ESPN's released their expert picks and the long list of individuals on there all had the same idea. The Boston Red Sox will win the 2011 World Series. There were a few people who thought otherwise, and some of them made a few crazy predictions.
Most experts believe it will be the Phillies and the Red Sox battling for the title. Can you really blame them? Philadelphia has the best rotation in baseball, and Boston may just have the best lineup in the league. Both teams want to win another championship, and they did what they had to do this off season to increase their chances.
Jim Caple is way out their in picking the Chicago White Sox to win it all. Buster Olney has the Giants repeating. Jerry Crasnick and Amy K Nelson both believe the Braves will win their first World Series in over a decade.
The experts over at Sports Illustrated all share the same mindset as well. The majority of them have Boston taking home the title. Albert Chen and Tim Marchman are with Caple thinking the White Sox have what it takes to win the World Series. Chicago may not even win their division, and we know they're not winning the wild card. That spot is usually reserved for the second best team in the AL East.
Jayson Stark of ESPN picked the Red Sox to win it all and wrote, "Remember now, they finished second in the big leagues in runs scored last year -- and that was before they went out this winter and added Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez. So how good can this team be?"
They can be really good Jayson. However, Boston has to stay healthy, something that has hindered them the past couple of years. Their lineup is dangerous, but they have to remain injury free.
