MLB.com polled the 30 GM's and asked them who they thought would win the World Series. The Red Sox were by far the favorites, being picked by 17 out of the 30 GM's. The next favorite choice was Detroit, receiving seven votes. Then it went Indians, Mets, Braves.
Of all 30 GM's not one picked the Yankees. I wonder when the last time was that that happened. The most popular World Series prediction was Red Sox against the Mets with 10 votes. Then came the Cubs and Tigers with three votes.
I never thought I'd say this, but I think it's safe to say that the Red Sox are clear favorites.
