With both playoff races looking so interesting , each league has a bunch of teams who could potentially win it all. But for me there are two teams who really stand out to win it all. Both of these teams are representing opposite leagues so , with all that being said here is my 2018 World Series Prediction.
The 2018 World Series will feature the Chicago Cubs representing the National League and the Cleveland Indians in the American League. A 2016 rematch , but this time it will be filled with more bombs , more exciting plays and more exciting rosters. Both teams are extremely close in record and have stars everyone loves to watch. The Chicago Cubs (84-60) are in an extremely tight race for the division with the Milwaukee Brewers (83-63) which I believe the Cubs will win because they have performed under pressure time and time again. The Cleveland Indians (82-63) seems to already taken the division with the next best team being the Twins who have not performed to expectation this season.
With the addition of Josh Donaldson , the Indians have an infield in which they have too much talent and not enough spots. Josh Donaldson who had been our most of the season (left calf) is a former MVP and could play a legitimate role in helping the Tribe represent the American League in the World Series along with AL MVP candidates Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor. On the other side the Cubs look to stay healthy and continue their nothing less than great season along with NL MVP candidate Javier Baez. If Cole Hamels continues to dominate he may be the ace of the Cubs going into October.
If the rematch does happen it could be one for the ages and could be better than 2016 which ended in extra innings in Game 7 which was no less than epic. The MLB and the fans are in for a real treat this October.
