As the everlasting 162 game Major League Baseball (MLB) season finally comes to an end, the Boston Red Sox lead the standings in terms of wins, as well as the power rankings. Falling just behind the Red Sox, in the AL, stand the New York Yankees and, the reigning World Series Champion Houston Astros.

The success of the Yankees comes as no surprise, considering this team is the placed in the largest market in a salary cap-less league. Not only did the Yankees acquire outfielder Giancarlo Stanton this last offseason, but the ever-playoff-present Yankees also grabbed stud outfielder Andrew McCutchen just before the trade deadline, sending infielder Abiatal Avelino and pitcher Juan De Paula to the San Francisco Giants.

To make this simple and concise, the Yankees are an easy choice for me to send to the World Series. While they may enter via the Wild Card due to Boston’s stellar season, they’ve got the talent to make a push towards October, assuming Aaron Judge makes a return off the disabled list for the playoffs.

When it comes to the teams that would be considered more local (i.e. teams in the midwest), meaning teams such as the Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago Cubs, Kansas City Royals, Minnesota Twins, and Chicago White Sox, only two teams look to have a real shot when it comes to the championship of the baseball world.

The Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers currently sit at the top of the National League (NL) Central division and the NL altogether, with records of 83-59 and 81-62, respectively. As for a World Series prediction, I’m making one only capable to have been put together in heaven, Yankees versus Cubs. We’ll see who comes out on top.
