MLB Futures – 2022 World Series Prediction

Take the Mets to win the World Series. 

Why?  Dominant starting pitching and the best manager in baseball

A focused Matt Scherzer and a healthy Jacob DeGrom will start a combined 3 games in a 5-game series and 4 games in a 7-game series.  Those guys will not lose in October.

The Mets’ skipper Buck Showalter is the MLB’s best manager.  Buck will be 2022 NL Manager of the year (bet that at +150 now) – and most likely MLB manager of the year.  He has more baseball knowledge and will have more postseason experience than any other manager the Mets will face in the postseason.  Steady, sure, brilliant, and he will not make mistakes in October

The Path…

Our best long-shot pick … the Tampa Bay Rays

… Yes, the Rays. 

The Rays are getting healthy and playing their best baseball right now.  They do everything well, don’t make a lot of mistakes, they’re young, fast, smart, and hungry and they just play harder than most teams they face.  

Rays pitching is top 3 in the American League and their bullpen has more strikeouts that any other AL contender (a premium in October).  There are no gaping holes in their lineup, their roster is solid 1 through 25  and they have the most innovative manager in the game in Kevin Cash

The bet here is the Rays get hot in September – if that happens they are trouble.
