OK gang, the 2008 World Series is here !!! applause

What are your predictions for;

the winner (Rays or Phillies) ?

how many games (4 minimum, up to 7 maximum) ?

and series MVP (most Valuable Player) ?


My predictions (and I don't know any more than you) are;

Winner = Phillies

Number of games = 7

MVP = Brad Lidge (Phillies closer)

(you can get the full rosters of both teams by going to
)


Predictions must be made before first pitch of first game, which is tomorrow night (Wednesday) at 8 pm est.

Scoring - 100 points for correct winning team.
100 points for correct MVP
100 points for correct number of games
-25 points for each number of games away from your pick.
Thus, e.g., if you pick 5 games and it ends up being 6 games, you score 75 points.

Thus, you could win by having any two correct.
You definitely win (at least a tie) by having all 3 exactly correct.

Winner will be declared CS 2008 World Series grand champion !!! applause

I have to go with the rays. they did incredibly well (although I was sick when they beat the sox) this year and they look hungry. I'd say game 4.

Des, the Phillies have always been my second favorite team.
I won't mind too much if the Rays win though, especially because they
are a great story and it would be thier first.

I don't know. I hope to see more of that new pitcher the rays have, he was great in the last innings against the sox. I have to admit I know little about both teams. over here we get two live games a week,(sun & wed) that start around 1.30am so I don't see as many games as i'd like. luckily though we do get the whole of the world series live

Well, just pick someone.
You have a 1 in 50 shot like the rest of us.
I put both rosters up at the top.

Yeah, David Price was the pitcher you mentioned.
I just did some research to check for you.
I did not see the last Red Sox Rays game.

but I heard it was a great game with Price striking out Drew (on a questionable call) with the bases loaded to end the game.
