SI's Verducci Picks Cubs Over Red Sox In World Series
Tom Verducci is perhaps the best baseball writer on the planet. So, when he makes playoff picks, we should all take notice. The good news is that the "V-Man" thinks your 2017 Carmine Hose will win the AL East and the AL Pennant. The really bad news is that he sees us losing to Theo Epstein and the Cubbies in the World Series. It makes one wonder what kind of reception Theo would get at Fenway during a Sox-Cubs Fall Classic. More than likely it would be a mostly positive reaction—although you just never know. We would advise having that Gorilla suit handy.
