Only one of the remaining postseason teams actually has what it takes to win the World Series

Game 1 of the World Series is just a week away, but there is still plenty of League Championship Series baseball to be played. Tied at 1, the ALCS resumes on Tuesday in Houston, as the Astros look to take another step toward returning to the World Series. For the Red Sox, Game 3 represents an opportunity to flip the script on last year's champs. As the Brewers showed on Monday, stealing Game 3 on the road can entirely change the complexion of a series.
The Dodgers, meanwhile, may be fighting for their postseason lives in Game 4.
Look, you can't fluke your way to the LCS. You've got to be a pretty darn good baseball team. These four teams are all very talented, and have each had seasons worthy of celebrations. But while all four teams technically remain alive in the chase for the Commissioner's Trophy, only one has consistently played championship-level baseball over the last month.
Check out the video at the top of the page to find out which team I believe is the clear favorite to win it all.
