AIM: # 1 Posted on 1.4.04 1434.14 Reposted on: 1.4.11 1435.15 You can find last year's results here (The W) and watch as I predict the Marlins at 100-1 and then fail to act upon that knowledge. From that thread, the gist of this is: Phil Mickelson, pro golfer, is a big-time gambler. His usual strategy is to bet on utterly random teams to win in the NFL every year, in the hopes that they will pay off big. He won BIG money two years in a row with St. Louis and Baltimore, ergo the strategy has some merit. So, without further adieu, it's time to pick your World Series, WITHOUT picking one of the preseason "favourites." This year I'll take the Padres at 20:1 and for my totally out there one I'll go with Cleveland at 150:1. Promote this thread!

Last time I had someone do this for me, I had the New York Giants at 50:1 in the year they lost the Super Bowl to Baltimore. RSN was not a happy person that day.

Where they'll do the jay-oh-bee to the Royals. That Mickelson-esque enough?
