We recorded 18 local and national picks before the ALCS. Of those 18, seven picked the Rangers. Dirk Nowitzki and WhatIf Sports were the only ones to pick a six-game Rangers win. Tim Cowlishaw, Marc Normandin, Evan Grant, Richard Durrett and ZiPS were the others to predict a Texas World Series appearance.â†µ
Among those picking the Yankees: Randy Galloway (6), Ken Rosenthal (6), Jon Heyman, Jay Jaffe (6), Craig Calcaterra, Jean-Jacques Taylor (7), Keith Law (5) and David Pinto.â†µ
I expect the World Series picks to be split more evenly, maybe with a slight tilt toward the Rangers.
