Whether you're rooting for the Red Sox or the Dodgers in the 2018 World Series, we all can admit who's truly the best of the best. From this season's top-performing pitchers to the guys who ended up with the biggest bats, each team boasts their share of the top players in the MLB right now. As far as the postseason goes, namely the Fall Classic, who do you think are the best players in the World Series for 2018?

Comparing starting pitchers and the league's top sluggers may be a bit odd, but they all contribute to their team in their own right. And hey, who ever said pitchers can't hit anyway? So with guys like Clayton Kershaw repping the Dodgers and Mookie Betts continuously giving it his all for the Sox, ranking all this year's World Series players isn't going to be easy. Nevertheless, we all want to see who stands above the rest. 

Now, check out the complete list of 2018 World Series players below, including all 25 players from each roster. Whether you think it's going to be a pitcher's game or the big hitters are going to be the ones to win it for their team, vote up the guys you think are going to help take it all this year.
