Victorino says Phils will win it all
Spring training has not even started yet, but outfielder Shane Victorino already knows who is going to win the World Series: his Philadelphia Phillies, the New York Post reported Wednesday.
"I'm not one to sit here and make predictions or make bold statements to stir the pot," Victorino said, "but I think if you look on paper, we're the favorites to win it all."
Las Vegas seems to agree with Victorino, listing the Phillies at 3-1 to win it all after surprisingly adding free agent Cliff Lee to a starting rotation that includes Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt.
The team did lose right fielder Jayson Werth to the Nationals in free agency.
