List Rules Vote up MLB teams you think will win the World Series in 2019

Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.

UPDATE: The Washington Nationals defeated the Houston Astros in seven games to win the 2019 World Series.

On MLB opening day, the only question most fans are asking already is: What team is going to win the World Series this year? The Boston Red Sox are in the mix to defend their title, while the rival New York Yankees will give them a challenge just for the American League East, let alone the pennant. In the National League, there are the up-and-coming Atlanta Braves trying to repeat last season's success and hold off the Philadelphia Phillies and their new superstar, Bryce Harper, while the Los Angeles Dodgers are trying to get back to a third consecutive World Series.

Harper wasn't the only star to switch teams in the offseason, though, with Manny Machado on the San Diego Padres and Paul Goldschmidt on the St. Louis Cardinals among the best players in baseball wearing new uniforms this year.

So vote for who's winning the 2019 World Series — and who perhaps will move up the list of best baseball teams of all time — and keep checking back as the season goes on to see how quickly things can change. Then head over and check out the top contenders for MVP in the AL and NL and Cy Young in the AL and NL.
