A-Rod, Pete Rose and Frank Thomas make their World Series picks Chris Bahr @ChrisBahr_FOX Mar 28, 2017 at 9:11a ET We’re less than a week away from Opening day of the 2017 Major League Baseball season. So what better time to talk about late October than in late March? FOX MLB analysts Alex Rodriguez, Pete Rose and Frank Thomas are here to share their World Series picks – and the 2017 Fall Classic might look a lot like the 2016 version. Our experts' predictions: Alex Rodriguez: Nationals vs. Red Sox “I like Nationals against the Red Sox. The Nationals have a hell of a twosome with Trea Turner and Bryce Harper, and [the Red Sox] have a tremendous threesome with Sale, Porcello and David Price.” USA TODAY Sports Mark J. Rebilas Pete Rose: Indians vs. Cubs “Because it was so exciting last year, rematch – Cleveland and Chicago Cubs. Cleveland’s gonna get the better of Chicago because they’ve improved; the Cubs have stayed about the same." USA TODAY Sports Charles LeClaire Frank Thomas: Cubs vs. Indians “Pete has come to his senses. I think the same thing. Cubs-Indians. Rematch.” USA TODAY Sports Tommy Gilligan Next Gallery 31 Each MLB team's top MVP candidate for the 2017 season Start Gallery » FOX Fantasy Baseball Join or Create a Free League Play Now!
