There's the rub, and why I try never to make predictions, because more often than not, I'm wrong. In a 162 game season, anything can happen. As was pointed out...look at the A's, the Orioles, and most of the season the White Sox? If I remember correctly, weren't the Red Sox in some circles picked to win the WS? That's why it's ridiculous to state anything as an absolute before the first pitch is even thrown.
