Who would I like to see win? Definitely JV and CM in Houston. That being said, if I were a betting man, I would say Grandy and the Dodgers are the best guess.

I voted Cleveland but I want Houston to win. Primary reason I voted Cleveland is Francona,

Billy Idol gets it. I can root for Granderson again now that he's not dressed in Bronx pinstripes.

If JV wins one and does well in the post season that could feature prominently in his HOF plaque.  NOt sure I want that over crowding his DET time.

Yeah I'm selfish.

Really good article on JV in today's USA Today rag.

Over 10 years on a team with ridiculous payrolls and he may win the WS with Houston less than three months after being traded. Forever a JV fan.

I think the Dodgers might have peaked and have some questions with the their rotation, mostly around health.  Washington is a darkhorse, but really don't want Scherzer getting a World Series (I'm vindictive that way).  And F Cleveland.

I'm pulling for Houston.  I do want Verlander to go in to the HOF, and a World Series win (and third appearance) would help his resume.  On the HOF topic, his getting traded was the best thing.  With our current team, he would struggle to win 10-12 games per year.  With 184 career wins, he really needs at least three more years with 15 wins each to get Hall consideration, IMO.  Otherwise, he's Roy Halladay.

Verlander is going to make the HoF whether he averages 12 wins or 15 wins over the next 3 years. 

It is known.

Well, he wouldn't get a dozen wins per season if he stayed.  I'm not convinced 220 wins gets him in.  He does have some great individual accomplishments and his K total is impressive, but his win total and ERA might be issues.

He's got at least 5 years left.

I hope so. No pitcher will likely get to 300 wins again, so it will be interesting to see what the new standard is for Hall voters.

Eight teams left and they all have important Ex-Tiger pieces. 

Who is your ex-Tiger?
