With the regular season coming to an end, Mark Bertrand and Chris Gasper discuss who the favorites are to win the World Series.  

Although the duo didn't agree on all the contenders, the two agreed that the Tigers are the favorites to win the championship.

"The top of their rotation is fantastic.  Verlander is not really the ace this year." said Bertrand,  "Max Scherzer has been terrific, Sanchez has been great. Doug Fister, you saw him (Saturday), you saw what he brings to the table."

Bertrand gives a lot of credit to the rotation, but explains that the offense is what makes the Tigers such a threat.

"Cabrera and Fielder in the middle of that lineup, good luck pitching around those guys because that is a difficult lineup to get around.  That's why you spend all that money.  That's why the Tigers have broken the bank.  Because in my mind, they have got the team that will be the World Series Champions."
