Most of our writers do not expect the White Sox to make the post-season in 2018. So, no one predicted that the Sox would be in the World Series.
These were the answers to the question: What two teams will be in the 2018 World Series?
Etheria: Astros and Dodgers
Roger: Astros and Nationals
Joe: Astros and Nationals
Darrell: Astros and Cubs
Brian: Yankees and Dodgers
Ruben: Yankees and Dodgers or Nationals
Nicole: Yankees and Nationals
Jeff: Astros and Cubs
Me: Astros and Nationals

At this point in the season, the teams that are dominating the American League are the Red Sox and the Angels. The Astros are 2.5 games behind the Angels and the Yankees are sitting at .500 and struggled to beat the Tigers on Friday night.
In the National League, the standings are even more unexpected. The Cubs have struggled from the get-go (even against teams like the Marlins), and are sitting at .500. The Dodgers are in last place in the NL West. The Nats are below .500 just 2.5 games ahead of the Marlins.
But, the teams that the Southside Showdown writers picked have some of the best players in the MLB and the standings could quickly change.
I couldn’t end this slide without sharing Darrell’s wisdom:
"“Cubs and Astros will battle it out this year, pitting the previous two winners against each other to see who will build a mini dynasty. No other teams have taken such a stacked lineup and added firepower the way these two teams did this offseason.”"
He’s certainly correct. There is plenty of time to see those stacked lineups get going, too.
