With the MLB officially over, who are the favourites to win it all in 2018?
The 2017 MLB World Series was one for the ages and congratulations to the Houston Astros for winning its first World Series in franchise history. The question is immediately brought up when someone wins a championship, can they repeat again next season?
It is quite possible the Houston Astros can win it all again next year, but it will be tough to repeat with teams getting better year in and year out.
Here are the teams that can challenge for the trophy next season!
The Indians had one of the best pitching rotations in the MLB this past season. Terry Francona is an excellent manager. Jose Rameriz emerged into a star this season for the Indians. The next star on the rise for the Indians is catcher Francisco Mejia. Cleveland has ended the season with disappointment the past two years.
They also won 22 straight games during the regular season which happened to be a new American League record. It is very important they bring back Jay Bruce and keep Edwin Encarnacion around.
