World Series 2014 predictions

Detroit, Texas, Tampa, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Arizona are expected to show the best results in the world series but visit On the other hand, Nationals, Royals and Pittsburgh are the “expectations outsiders”. Evan Longoria is in a very good condition. On April the 3rd, he hit his 163nd home run for his career in the Tampa Bay Rays. Miguel Cabrera has made his 2000th home run for his whole career, and brought victory to the Detroit Tigers. Both of them have had great runs previously and continue to dominate in their respective teams.

The Los Angeles Angels are in very good condition too. Albert Pujols has made his 1500th home run in the first inning and became the 52nd player, who achieved this mark in the whole history. Also, he has made his 500th home run in the fifth inning, becoming the 26th player who did this through the history of World Championship. With this, his name would be marked in the history of the greatest baseball players of all time, a feat that he can surely be proud of.

Of course we should not forget about the personality factors. I think everybody understands that the result of the game also depends on the mood and physical condition of the players. In such a way Detroit can easily lose to, for example, a team like Pittsburgh.

One of the leaders is undoubtedly Tampa Bay Rays. They decided to leave in their team David Price, and he will be accompanied by Wil Meyers, Ryan Hanigan and Logan Forsythe. These names can make the best World Series season in the whole history of Tampa Bay Rays.
But The Rays are not the only leaders of the season. The Boston Red Sox have gathered a cool team too. Xander Bogaerts can foil all plans of Tampa Bay Rays about having their “best season” and leave them behind. He has done it in the past and is very capable of doing it again.
The Blue Jays are not as good this year as the previous season.

It seems that they did their best last season and now they are just having a rest, playing only for fun. They give the impression as if they have lost their magical touch. But they still have a chance, if Drew Hutchison, Aaron Sanches and Marcus Storman stop doing strange stuff during the game and will play the way they can. They’ve got the star power; all they got to do now is to pull up their socks and back themselves into winning ways.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are Looking to Bounce Back for 2014

Last year, Pittsburgh Steelers tickets were insanely cheap because the team finished 8-8 for the second season in a row. Their final game of the 2013 season determined their lack of presence in the playoffs, and their heads were hanging low at the season’s end. Still, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had his second best season in 2013 despite the overall offensive struggle. Looking towards the 2014 season, the Steelers franchise has moved on from continued reliance on their aging veteran players and have invested instead in recruiting, resigning and retaining younger players like star linebacker Jason Worilds. Things seem to be on the up turn for the Steelers’ 2014 season.

Looking forward to the 2014 season, the Steelers have a tough but potentially rewarding season ahead of them. The Steelers will play a total of five times on primetime television throughout the year, twice of which will be against the rival Baltimore Ravens. To kick off their season, the Steelers face the Cleveland Browns and should do well against the fragmented, struggling team who finished 4-12 last year. In Week 2, The Steelers face the Ravens on a Thursday night on primetime television. Because the Ravens will have home field advantage and perform exceptionally well under prime time lights, they are a favorite to win. If the Steelers can pull off a win against the Ravens in Week 2, they can really set the tone for a bouncing back, energized Steelers team for the rest of 2014.

Sadly, the Steelers have gradually declined over the past few years from having one of the league’s top defenses to having the number 14 defense. Their running game was one of the worst in the league in 2013, and their offense suffered from a plethora of injuries. Frequent sacks and turnovers didn’t help their offensive cause, either. Still, the 2013 Steelers made progress over the prior year’s numbers and they now seem to be bouncing back. Can this year’s roster boast even better offensive and defensive numbers? If the Steelers hope to get out of their 50% winning percentage rut, they’re going to have to make some serious progress on the field.

On the 40th anniversary of their Super Bowl IX victory, the Steelers are pumped up to achieve victory. The Steelers just might be able to turn their transitioning offense and defense into one cohesive unit to achieve the types of team victories that paint the Steelers’ rich past.
