We’re going to refrain from making predictions on the series at hand, but we’re happy to report on what the quote-unquote experts at ESPN.com have to say. Their 10-man panel breaks down as follows:
Yanks vs Angels
7-3 in favor of the Angels. The good news: Rob Neyer and Alan Schwarz, in our estimation the most reliable scribes, pick the Yanks. John Kerry Flip Flop Award goes to Buster Olney for picking the Angels—this after predicting a 1927-level performance from the Yanks at the beginning of the year. Busted.
BoSox vs. ChiSox
6-4 in favor of the BoSox. Zell Miller Turncoat Award to (Deserving!) Hall of Famer Peter Gammons, for picking Chicago. We’ll go out on a limb and say this: the Sox are gonna win. Bank on it.
