World Series Prediction: The Magic Continues

WorldSeriesTrophy.jpgThe entire season, I have doubted the Tampa Bay Rays, first thinking they would never win the division, and secondly, thinking they would not advance deep in the postseason.  However, now that the Rays have proven me wrong time and time again (and beaten the playoff-savvy Red Sox), they are my pick to host the Commissioner’s Trophy in about a week.

I think both teams are very evenly matched (as pitching is the strong suit of either side), but I’m giving the series to Tampa Bay because of their home field advantage at the Trop.  In a shocking upset, I think that the Rays will defeat Philadelphia Phillies ace starter Cole Hamels in Game One and shake up the Phils a bit.  However, I also see the series advancing to at least a sixth game (as Philly plays well at home too), but likely no further, as the home-town magic will be enough to propel the Phils into the promised land.

So, because of the home field advantage and enough talent to beat Philly’s ace, I predict a Rays world championship in six games.  I’m excited to see what happens…
