October 23, 2008 - The Tampa Bay Rays will win the World Series, if the vast majority of fans voting in the most recent online poll are correct.

The worst-to-worst Rays, winners of the American League East and of the AL pennant, were picked by an overwhelming 80 percent of voters. Tampa, which earned 135 of 168 total votes, lost the Series opener, 3-2, to Philadelphia on Wednesday.

Boston, which lost a seven-game ALCS series to the Rays, was second, with all of 11 votes (7 percent), was second. The NL-champion Phillies totaled 10 votes (6 percent). The Cubs gained just four votes and the White Sox two. The Los Angeles Dodgers, who reached the NLCS, was the only playoff team to not receive a vote.
