Two fairly improbable franchises are in the World Series: The White Sox and Astros haven't been there in about 45 years. For the Astros that means they've never been there, and the White Sox have a chance to break yet another storied baseball curse. Pitching should be at a premium, although there is also no shortage of big bats. (For most of the year it seems the Astros couldn't hit out of a wet paper bag, but they seem to be doing just fine lately.) The country seems to be almost exactly 50/50 about who they like and who they think will win. What do you think will happen?
