No question about it. The Cubs have turned themselves into an average team, and that may be enough.

My picks today would be NYA/CLE/LAA + DET in the AL, and SD/STL/PHI + NYN in the NL. World Series, Cards over Yankees. Why not?

Well, it would have happened in 2004 had the Yankees not choked BIG time.

I'm not ready to make my predictions yet about who'll place where, but as far as the Cubs go, they've basically had the Cards number for the last couple years anyway so I'm not going to fear them any more or less as far as when they're playing the Cards, at least. If they can show that they can start to beat other teams as well, then I'll start to take them more seriously.

It would've happened in 1996 if the Cards hadn't choked agains the Braves.

I, too, would love to see a Cards/Yanks series. My father and grandmother made a bet on the '64 WS when he was 9 yrs old. He lost of course. I have (or had) a 1964 Cardinal champion glass set. It belonged to my great aunt who was another huge Cardinal fan. Yeah, I could see these two teams playing for the championship very soon. Both are in good shape for the future..
